    Silent Light

    ★★★★★

    Sunrise, Sunset, Love, Birth, Death, Regret. Life goes on.

    Silent Light touched me even more on second viewing and continues to be one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. A stunning, hypnotic, transcendent, spiritual experience on the human condition. So what is Silent Light? The sounds of crickets, lowing of cattle, and an occasional bird cry. The natural world.

    "If I were to shout, who would hear me out of the armies of angels?"

    Landscape in the Mist is the second Angelopoulos film I delved into today along with 'Eternity and a Day' - Angelopoulos may just be one of the greats!

    Deliberate emotional complexity -- Landscape in the Mist is a difficult film to watch in many areas yet is a truly unforgettable experience. I found myself deeply moved by the damage inflicted to these children in the…
