Critics reviews

Demonstrating his talent for capturing masses of people, Landscape is the film that most keenly anticipates later works such as Maidan, structured as it is around similar parameters, though on an entirely different scale. It culminates in a grand stylistic flourish—a concatenated blur of color and motion; the stasis of the previous fifty minutes gives way to a rush of movement. Then the moment is over, and all that remains is the landscape set against the waning light of day—the essence of time.
