Swollen up by the spring inundation, the river falls down on the lowlands and before eventually throwing rocks and silts in the sea, gathers them here and there in the middle of the river. In several days, even sometimes overnight, in these shoals rather large islands are created. Soil of such an island is rich and fertile. An old man and his young granddaughter decide to grow corn on this island. But soldiers pass by.
Originally, the island was supposed to be filled with wildlife, but due to unknown reasons that was cut from the script. The filmmakers did get 2 deer to walk around on the island, but one died in transport, and the other was badly wounded. So they decided to just put the wounded deer on the island, capturing its death on film. See more »
But I wish it will be like a silent film without talking, because for some reason I didn't like the talking in the movie, even tough it was short.
and I wish the movie also had no music, i'm not complaining that the music was bad, i'm just saying it was unnecessary. in my opinion.
but other than those two complaints, the movie was good, really visually interesting, and good story and characters too.
