An aquatic poem that leaves a lasting impression in the mind
Dostoivski had predicted: "Beauty will save the world !" Writer-director Abbas Fahdel must share the same hope. His "Dawn of the World" is full of beauty beauty that stands next to horror. Quite original, the film evolves in a special temporality (made of long shots that give the film its particular rhythm) and in a redesigned space stretched between two extremes: that of the infinitely large (the desert, the swamps) and that of the infinitely small (the houses of reeds). Fadhel films the natural environment in the manner of Tarkovsky, plays on the contrast between land and water, between city and nature, and guide us to the heart of a devastated "Zone", formerly known as the ancient biblical Garden of Eden. Unforgettable !
