Storyline

Set in a small farming community in mid Wales, a place where Koppel's parents - both refugees - found a home. This is a landscape and population that is changing rapidly as small scale agriculture is disappearing and the generation who inhabited a pre-mechanised world is dying out. Much influenced by his conversations with the writer Peter Handke, the film maker leads us on a poetic and profound journey into a world of endings and beginnings; a world of stuffed owls, sheep and fire.

Not a story
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I completely agree with the above writer. The disjointed nature of the film made it impossible to follow any thread, and anything I was interested in was cut short. For instance, when the calf was born and the mother was licking it - endlessly - did it survive? Why did the dogs fight? I'm afraid I too thought all the longueurs were pretentious, and my neighbour looked at her watch four times! I feel that, although it was made with the best of intentions, there was a strong element of the Emperor's New Clothes about this film. If it was about the demise of a village, it was not made clear why the school closing meant everything else had to go. For me it didn't make a story.
