The film bears witness to German artist Anselm Kiefer's alchemical creative processes and renders in film, as a cinematic journey, the personal universe he has built at his hill-studio estate in the South of France. Written by
I viewed 8 minutes of the movie before rushing to turn the console off because my dislike kept growing more and more powerful. This strong reaction was followed by a much longer period of time spent trying to understand why I reacted so negatively. The conclusion I came to was that the director, Sophie Fiennes, was probably a young filmmaker whose immaturity allowed herself to be swayed by the person who composed the music. The music was the main component that made the movie unbearable and I thought Ms. Fiennes simply didn't realize that the score should serve to tell the story, not dominate it. Then I discovered that Ms. Fiennes was born in 1967, not 1992 and so have no idea why someone of her age and film-making experience would make such a rookie mistake.
