"Days of Heaven" is the second full length film from Terrence Malick, on the heels of his first "Badlands" (which is something to behold if you get the chance.) This is the sort of movie one experiences, as it is indeed graceful. It'll stick with you too. Two things take precedence here: the brilliant visuals and Ennio Morricone's score. These elements are almost characters in themselves. And they reinforce each other, become another creature combined.
The script itself is secondary and it almost seems like we are viewing the tale from afar. Dialogue is sparse. Many of these scenes were filmed in twilight, right before the sun is setting. This is the account of a teenage girl, related by her, and its subject is the way that her spirit has become subdued. Life's promise and comfort have all but left her soul. Thus the manner in which this film is presented. It's her story. And it is interesting how it all turns out.
