Lee Bullitt's rating of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock

It's bad enough the first 4 minutes are the most beautiful, relaxing sequence I care to watch over & over, but there is so much inside of this simply strewn, quiet film. The symbolism and simplicity are what make it truly unique. I can barely breathe during some of these scenes either out of happiness or calm. Pay attention to this.
