  • Matilda's rating of the film Song from the Forest

    A very impressive story. Watching this you realize that theres more to life than the life we're living in our modern society. It made me think about how culture is one of the most important things humanity has to keep alive. Unfortunately we're losing it and with it essential knowledge for living a real life. This movie visualizes this process very well by contrasting two totally different life styles. Thanks Mubi!
