Very Spiritul
25 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A little slow for first 25 minutes but a very deep movie. Man is just one of Gods creature and should strive to live in harmony with nature. Made me appreciate how unimportant material things are compared to relationships and understanding. The Big man was shown as a being at peace with his surroundings. I got the sense that he was more then intelligent enough to understand that all he needs is in the forest. While the Humans in the Movie are all wanting of something, but searching all the wrong places for it. The Cinematography was exceptional as was the movie score. The acting was good and dialog was just enough to keep the story moving. It was nice to see a movie that was a work of love and not depend on special effects. I am not sure how this would have played to a large release, but is definitely a great movie to watch with a glass of wine in front of a fire on a cold winter day.
