Flandres

Bruno Dumont France, 2006

dmol's rating of the film Flanders

I enjoyed the silences and the polar extremities of social surroundings and scenery. The raucous war in the heated desert doesn't spare Flanders a certain passivity, though. For one, the "hero" rapes a girl and, both aesthetically and emotionally, it is seen from a distance - later zooming on...love??
