Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Part documentary, part art house, this is a wonderfully photographed depiction of the purgatorial lives led in heavy mining and steel making in pursuit of China’s economic miracle. It is slow moving and with little narrative, except for some poetry based on Dante’s inferno. If you liked Koyaanisquatsi this is close. I’m well aware that I’m making it seem very arty and hence possibly boring for many but it honestly comes over as a fascinating and moving piece of film making that will make you feel very grateful for your current life.

Wow..

This is a horrific piece; but a piece of art, I believe.

An elegy, a love poem, to mother nature.
A sad sight to behold, but a magnificent portrayal of the evil, greediness that is uprooted the earth.

Mysteriously hypnotizing; mystical.

Beautiful cinematography, haunting visuals, eerie soundtrack; though the equipment itself plays a soundtrack of it's own: horror. This is a horror symphony of it's own.
Though, not a conventional horror; horror, at our own kind; what we can do to ourselves, and our earth.
A dreamy, almost ethereal narration.

A combination of pure beauty visual, with poetry; help to elevate this to a piece of art; visual poetry.

This may well be, most definitely is one of the best films I've seen, this year.

A masterpiece.
A Gem; exposure, to the unsung heroes of our time.

Not for the faint-hearted.

I implore you to watch this piece.

*Spoiler*

One of the last shots, sums it all:

'All the sacrifices, transmuted into steel'

All the pain, sacrifice, and disease, that the workers will go through, to merely create a piece of steel, transmuted, to go into our cities, where people live happily, with huge wealth, and the people in the mines, have sacrificed themselves, for their steel.....
