DAWN OF THE WORLD is a visual poem, a tragic tale that takes place in a haunting, almost mythic landscape. The simplicity of the story and the beauty of the images almost make the story seem a misty dream. Brought in pictures of utter elegance, extreme subtlety, it highlights, despite a backdrop of war and death, the noble side of human being: compassion and mercy to the weak, maintenance of integrity amid suffering although it would not be misleading to place it in the company of the films of Mizoguchi and Satyajit Ray. It has the same generosity , the same kind of compassionate humanism, expressed with equal sensitivity and poetry. I hope one day it will be as well known as it deserves to be.
