Beautiful Film
2 March 2007 | by slawikSee all my reviews

The movie was great in a very introspective way. The beauty of human interaction was in how things didn't have to be said, but were just understood through simple gestures. The struggle of deciding what's important about life, whether it's escaping persecution or environmental disaster, or feeling obligated to stop the desert, or following your family, or yearning for freedom - ultimately it's at beautiful tale about following your instincts to live in harmony. As the desert advances, Hangai realizes that his calling to stop the encroaching sands by planting trees cannot be swayed even by his wife and daughter abandoning him. Before he even wakes up from drowning his sorrow with alcohol, he unwittingly finds himself hosting strangers who don't speak his language but nevertheless feel compelled to stay. Don't expect a soundtrack, in fact, don't even expect more than two lines of dialog at once. Actions truly speak louder than any words here.
