WOW, what a treat.....
26 February 2017 | by BasicLogicSee all my reviews

I didn't pay too much attention when this film started on my screen, but then the seamless flow of this documentary just caught my eyes and I was lost in its beautiful and unpretentious cinematography to the end. It was like reading one of the most beautiful poem, yet at the same time, also like watching a merciless changing of the world, a world that once was so rich and abundant in giving and taking by the nature, a world of nature where a story that only the forest could tell you, a world that was once well-balanced by all the creatures and the plants until we humans appeared, a world then became so unbalanced by our endless desires and appetite to gain more living space from the nature, not just occupied but mindlessly ruined it. We humans are the most vicious and greedy species that bulldozed the nature and turned it into so-called real estates, landlords and property owners. We invented laws to protect what we robbed from the nature, we claimed ownership to the land we developed from the wildness of the nature, and then built property lines by fences and walls, and put up "Private Property-No Trespassing" warning signs all over the world. We are robbers but self-claimed as developers, we destroyed everything in our way and praised the destruction as progress. We polluted the nature, the air, the water, the earth around us, these natural existences were raped by us since day 1 when we appeared and called it as "The beginning of the civilization". We privatized almost everything that we could put our hands on and ruined it as we wished and preferred, and we excused ourselves as civilized citizens of the world of nature, but in fact, we were robbers of the nature.

This "Season" is trying so hard to remind we people to be friend with the nature, but I doubt it's a wishful thinking just like all kinds of prayers that we humans would have to come up with when we kneel at our bedsides or in the church, giving our wishful thinkings to the so-called "God", a non-exist creation for us to be excused or forgiven for all the bad things we did and things we'd like to have or to be realized for free.
