Don't ask me why I love that movie, but, God !, I love it ! Maybe because it's about a border (physical : between two countries, that's means nowhere for the common sense; and mental : living or keeping dreaming ?). Maybe because Alain Tanner knows that trees and cows (I love cows) have something to tell us. Maybe because he knows that ordinary is extraordinary. And certainly because of the Terry Riley music. The great french critic Serge Daney wrote about that movie those definitive lines : "This is the enjoyment at the idea that "Things are there", and demand, in silence, to be seen, to be registered, filmed; and this is the anguish at the idea there is no more collective way that lead to them (a collective way is "the fiction"), only individual itinerary, some secret ways".
