  2. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

  3. Stu Witmer's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    A tad too "authentic" for my tastes: the manufactured locations are, if anything, Polish, not Netherlandish. I particularly liked the cameo by the Turin Horse

  4. riraru's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Eine sehr schöne Idee und eine herrliche Inszenierung, aber leider enervierend langatmig.

  5. AVA's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Eindrucksvoll.Offenbarend.

  6. Patrick Degenhardt's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

  7. docdss's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    mind-boggling enactement of a painting. very intense, dark, restrainly emotional, human, artistic; philosphical but contemplative, as speechless as you will be. bold but successful. well, all this, approximately. watch it.

  8. Operation Kino's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Like Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, every frame looks like a painting -- a moving, living painting. Just watch it and feel the emotional weight of humans looking like ants next to windmills.

  9. Fabiha's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Bruegel's painting has come alive

  10. sark's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

  11. Levent Güçer's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

  12. kowalski's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    a "never seen before such a style" moment marsch, marsch dobrowsky

  13. suede's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    The oddest anti-realism. I was enthralled for the first half hour or so by the wordless, technically brilliant visuals and the lighting. But as time passed on, the disappointment with this sterile, incomprehensible film grew. Also: Enjoy an all-Polish supporting cast, in a Polish mountain landscape, with three lead actors speaking English – now if that isn't Brueghel's Flanders come alive. Pretentious failure.

  14. Stefan Drees's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    The famous painting as a multidimensional network of historical events, imagined human relationships and invented 16th century soundscapes: Majewski explores the structures beyond the surface of Bruegel's "Procession to Calvary" and makes us see a work of art from another - also highly artificial - point of view.

  15. Catarina C Gomes's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Poetically paced and visually stunning.

  16. ach's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    simbolico, forse mi aspettavo più pathos e meno intelletto

  17. Simona's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Sobald man sich von der Caravaggio-ähnlichen Fotografie sattgesehen hat, kann man fast forward machen.

  18. Ezgi's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

  19. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Past and present collide in this grandiose film that brings to life the work of painter Pieter Brugel. Nearly wordless, the film relies almost entirely on its visuals. Some of its special effects are stronger than others, but it puts the viewer into the painting. Mixing the ordinary & the mundane w/ unflinching violence, the film pulls you in. While it does lose its way near the ending, its a meditative & unique film

  20. agartthaa's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    the director deconstructs Bruegel's wholeness notion of the painting in an ironic way.

  21. ecstatic truth's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    One of those films that is so enjoyably silent that when someone does finally speak the spell is broken and you're like, 'Shut the fuck up'

  22. amanda wild's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    loved! overheard two people in the theater: "every painting contains that"

  23. John's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    Thank you, Lech Majewski for making this. Walking around NYC at the end of spring, I see Breugel-like tableaus everywhere. Also recommend INSIDE BREUGEL by Edward Snow as a brilliant companion book.

  24. Weston Campbell's rating of the film The Mill and the Cross

    A decent idea, but too polite and lacking in compelling ideas to work as art in its own right.
