Iceland, Christmas time. As everyone prepares for the holidays, a peculiar atmosphere falls upon the country revealing emotions of both excitement and concern. In the middle of the countryside, an abandoned farm is burning. In a school, a children's choir is singing Christmas carols. In a slaughterhouse, chickens are parading along a rail. In a museum, a mother is arguing with her ex-husband on the phone. In a living room, a young girl is making her grandmother try on her new virtual reality headset - Through 56 scenes, Echo draws a portrait, both biting and tender, of modern society.Written by
Great movie for art lovers. Also for people who thinking about the meaning of life. It deals with patterns of behavior in society. Reminds me of Roy Anderson films. It might be weird and incomprehensible for fans of blockbusters and Hollywood movies. But that is his strength. This is not a classic and common movie, this is an art-film about life and people. It was made from a series of stories presented by 56 beautifully realized frames. It makes you think, but at the same time it's really simple movie. Recommendations.
