Gorgeous.
1 January 2004 | by ArrivederciBabySee all my reviews

This short film, a salute to the diverse cultures that played a part in the history of California, always brings me to tears. The imagery is absolutely breathtaking, and the storytelling surprisingly dramatic considering the brief length of the film. No wonder, then, to finally look up the production info here (there are no credits in the film) and discover that this is the work of the wonderful Polish director Agnieszka Holland (Angry Harvest, Europa Europa, The Secret Garden). Bravo!
