Con los acontecimientos recientes de Charlie Hebdo, nos muestra esa realidad actual de la problemática de migración en este entorno global y cómo ciertas acciones del occidentetienen repercusiones inusitadas. Una película contemplativa que lo más interesante viene en la reflexión. Tengo 5 años de haberla visto y al leer noticias acerca de jóvenes occidentales que se marchan a luchar con ISIS pensé en Hadewijch.
A really beautiful film for adults that doesn't judge it's characters. I thought the last fifteen minutes were exquisite. And the inevitable "Dumont moment" was more subtle than expected. It out Bresson's Bresson in some ways, without being misanthropic. Really surprised by this one. Also exquisitely shot and excellent use of music and sound.
Here is a film I've grappled with since seeing it and it has since won me over. I don't think I'll forget it. Also what is the name of that band that plays with the accordion I remember moving back in forth rocking out in my seat quietly in a theater. Prob. my favorite captured performance by a band in any film I just love the way they shot that..
In this work Dumont reduces the gap between spirituality and awareness even more. It's a film about the physical embodiment of faith as the truth. About the possibility to trust and become conscious. It's pity that in our days we can talk about it on screen only through extremism. Elevating!
