Synopsis

This film records the return visit of brothers Jonas and Adolfas Mekas to their homeland of Lithuania. They apparently left the country near the end of World War II, and suffered various hardships on their way to America. Until the time of this film (1972), they had never been back.

Our take

Pioneer of the diary film, the relentless oeuvre of the one and only Jonas Mekas confirms the “home movie” as a film form. Reminiscences is one of the finest examples of intimacy ever put on celluloid.
