Terrible, terrible, terrible
20 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

There's no point clicking the spoiler button because there literally is no plot, no narrative, nothing.

I get the concept, guy lives live as a hermit, he does mundane things like walk through the beautiful countryside and falls asleep loads. He doesn't need material things, he's quite content this way.

Every now and then you see old photographs of his family which makes you wonder what actually happened to them. There's no clue at all. All I can think is this is the life he has chosen, or maybe he does see them but we don't see that. Either way, who really cares.

Its shot in black n white with the only dialogue being socks.

Some of the music is OK

Quite simply one of the dullest films ever made
