Movie Reviews

A creative marriage of art and philosophy.
Ann von Lossberg | MD | 03/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a gem. Almost flawless, you can feel that every detail has been tended to. From a great arm's length (the universe), it asks what we're meant to be doing on this ball that goes round and round. The cinematography constantly surprises, like stills in a photgraphic exhibit, and the score compliments beautifully. In the end, LePage concludes, all we have is art and poetry and love; these transcend the things that threaten to make us crazy."

"Let me first clarify that I am not francophone or the kind of person who watches artistic movies. Yet, this movie totally absorbed me and took me to a tremendous emotional and visual trip.

I do not want to say much about this simple looking and yet intrically woven movie involving space travel, personal alienation, family love, dejection, and alien messages and yet full of humanity.

I am speechless."
