August Underground's Penance is an exquisite work........a gift
14 June 2011 | by (Leipzig) – See all my reviews

Last night I was blessed with an experience that is the gift of cinema

  • a very very beautiful film that celebrates the glory of the human


soul in a way that drove me to tears of joy and gratitude at having had the privilege of being a part of it.

August Underground is an exquisite work, with multiple levels of relevance that are marvelously integrated into a seamless story. On one level, it is a celebration of man's great capacity for and heritage of attunement to nature and the limitless beauty that he chooses to return to, having tired of the unsatisfying world that he had created in its place on his path of discovery. It is also a testimony to the process of healing, of how it is an opportunity to delve deep into the recesses of the traumatised soul, and how it can only be undertaken with a simultaneous caring for everyone involved in the circle of influence. It is also an examination of relationships, of the relationship between the victim and the abuser, between man and man, between human and inhuman, and ultimately between body and soul. Ultimately the film is a triumph of spirit, a paean to a long forgotten wholeness and harmony that is celebrated in the film as though it just were, and had never ceased to be, without the wrangling and flailing that one has come to expect of a piece of art that attempts to recapture the glory of the soul.

The story of August Underground is simple enough and I shall neither describe it, nor analyse the components of the film. Doing this would reduce its stature to that of a product.

August Underground is a gift, accept it.
