  1. fearraigh's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    António Lopez paints a quince tree in his yard over the course of a winter in Madrid. Not much happens but Erice, with his customary one film per decade, conjures up something marvellous in this meditation on time and creation. One of the best films about art there is.

    "Más entero...más entero..."

  6. Matt Reddick's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Watched with my Colombian grandmother-in-law ... "Are we just going to watch them farting around?"

  7. João Biscaia's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    "Desde el lugar donde observo la escena no puedo saber si los demás ven lo que yo veo. Nadie parece advertir que todos los membrillos se están pudriendo bajo una luz... que no sé cómo describir, nítida y a la vez sombría, que todo lo convierte en metal y ceniza. No es la luz de la noche, tampoco es la del crepúsculo. Ni la de la aurora." Truth, truth, truth and marmelada.

  8. El Biffo's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Exploring the relationship between painting and cinema, the composition of objects within a frame, and capturing light, with the injection of the major difference that cinema offers - the passage of time.

  9. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    A true lost treasure of cinema!!! When creation dies, he has to reborn anyway!

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Un documental que está a línea de los argumentos estéticos de Víctor Erice. El objeto, espacio, perspectiva y ambiente lumínico como un todo que compone la pintura, lo que sería en el cine el encuadre. Eso es algo muy latente en las anteriores películas del español. El final de "El sol de membrillo" es una suerte de resumen del documental. Las luces y el crepúsculo respondiendo a esa obsesión del pintor/cineasta.

  11. Jordi Minguell's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    La vi de pequeño y no entendí nada. La vi de adolescente y me sedujo por completo. La volví a ver de adulto y no se me ha ido nunca de la cabeza.

  12. Brendan's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Rich and contemplative, this emergent documentary finds its power naturally flowing from its painfully doomed subject. Extremely dense and subtle, the film's confrontations with the limitations of art and man remain justly complex, contradictory and open ended. Absolutely astounding cinema.

  16. afuchs's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    There is a certain point in the movie, about two thirds in, when metaphysics kicks in. The painter's friend says "We have to find Conchita and get the picture" and the fabric rips open - unexpectedly.

  17. Oswaldo Colón Ortiz's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Es simplemente una joya, que no pasa por las constricciones de los géneros cinematicos. It is simply a gem. One that escapes the constraints of cinematic genres.

  18. Aquieu's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Conversations between an artist and old friends. An artist and admirers. An artist and a tree...This is a film that reflects on art, life, the passage of time and what it is to inhabit a spirit and truth in artistic conception. There's a soft poetry to everything Erice does, an honesty and respect for his subjects that is infinitely rewarding if you take the time to appreciate his work.

  19. Eliecer Gaspar's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    Pero que solemne triunfo del cine. Me dejo aturdido por dos días, en los cuales no vi ninguna otra película porque me parecía innecesario. El arte es impráctico y en verdad no sirve para nada excepto para salvar al mundo. Y solo a veces.

  20. comeandsee's rating of the film The Quince Tree Sun

    part documentary, part dream like fiction, this film gets ride the heart of cinema itself within it's running time. it presents the faith that cinema holds in the value of time itself, as well as the compisitional similarities between the processes filmmakers and painters. interesting and engaging, a very impressive piece from erice.
