  1. DrFirestone's rating of the film From the Depths

    A poetic documentary, some scenes are beautifully dreamy, yet somehow uneasy, dark and lonely. This films conveys the atmosphere down below the surface, the low morale, the economical instability of the workers - we can directly see how this once well paid and respected profession balances on the verge of extinction in Europe. Little is revealed about the workers' lives or the political/economical unrest in the area.

  2. joao.crepschi's rating of the film From the Depths

    De estrutura convencional, é um Germinal pós-moderno. Das profundezas de um realismo. Sem súplicas.

    Notes from the underground.

  4. satoshi's rating of the film From the Depths

    Protest deep under the earth.Documentary and drama combined.

  5. dionysus67's rating of the film From the Depths

    As if 'from the depths' of the abyss, this remarkable documentary makes the most out of the cinematically constraining environment of coal mine underground. Rising to the sun can mark disillusionment for the workers-troglodytes when fateful alienation is mitigated by Pyrrhic victories. Puccini coexists with nude models on the shower room walls in a rare moment of uplifting pause from fatigue. Enlightening film!

  6. Juan Javier's rating of the film From the Depths

    Demasiado amor por su propio tema.

  7. tinderness's rating of the film From the Depths

    Irgendwann wurde der Film langatmig, vor allem deshalb, weil im Gegensatz zu den Sequenzen von Unter Tag nur kurze und nicht signifikante Begegnungen mit den Bergarbeitern gezeigt wurden. So blieben die, um die es eigentlich gehen sollte, im Hintergrund, ebenso wie die Geschehnisse um die Schließung der Mine sowie das soziale Umfeld unscharf blieb. Wenig kam da von den Tiefen hinauf, außer das ohnehin Vermutete.

  8. Stefan Drees's rating of the film From the Depths

    A quiet and claustrophobic documentary with great camera work, few words and impressive sequences. And with some light and playful moments like the worker singing Puccini's aria under the shower.

  12. Korial's rating of the film From the Depths

    A vivid piece of reality. Small talks, prayers, brief phone calls, the choral songs in the dressing rooms, bodies cleaning off the dirt and the tiredness, the waitings, the empty led-lit spaces, the murmur of the machinery, and again, miners' strikes and political struggle, and their dreams and preoccupations for old age pension and health complications. Crickets in the eternal night of the underground.
