WOW.....what a beauty!, 20 May 2006
I felt like one well walked elephant after watching this film! It never fails to captivate the eye and ear; using visuals and music only, it takes you on a journey around the tips of the world and back.
You can see that Fricke has almost put his life into the cinematography, which will endlessly take you closer to the edge of you seat; with every shot revealing a new and astounding outlook of this beautiful world. I have never felt such an array of emotions from a single movie! From sand desserts, to forests, waterfalls, volcanoes, the sky, people at prayer, to people at war; each shot is uniquely precious with a character of its own.
The music is elegantly wrapped around the visuals; sounding similar to God Speed You Black Emperor and Explosions In The Sky, which alone would take you on a journey of a lifetime. This inspired soundtrack adds the extra dimension to the stunning photography.
I would recommend you find the biggest TV and the best sound system, turn up the volume, shut the curtains and swell into your surroundings. Never to return.
