  1. Maciej Piatek's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    even though I understand that comedy at the end but I don't like it so much, otherwise very interesting take

  2. Superfrog's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Rather lacks coherence or surrealism. Drags on from here to there as a result.

  3. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Director Ben Rivers provides viewers with a very interesting and intriguing little film, starting off as a behind the scenes look at another film (Mimosas) being made and then turning into something quite different. It is often beautiful, sometimes seems nonsensical, and fleetingly bloody and/or violent in scenes that make quite an impact.

  4. Sarah Pietsch's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    The title alone makes you want to watch it. Very memorable. Very good to see it together with Mimosas. What an interesting pair they make, Ben Rivers and Oliver Laxe. Looming landscapes, crazy costume, stunning sunset. Wow.

  5. Susie Hamilton's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    A cruel, enigmatic and compelling story in which a filmmaker is taken prisoner and becomes himself an entertainment, subjected to humiliation in a jangling suit of tin cans. His ordeal is set in a vast, golden landscape and the ending sees him escape into this, morphing into a carnivalesque figure dancing towards the sunset..

  8. contact@niklaspersson.com's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    It is a very poetic experience, is partly quite disturbing, and quite the sleep pill. I saw this on the Gothenburg International Film Festival in 2015, both me and a friend along with much of the audience seemed to have been dozing off one time or another. There was literally a guy snoring next to us. Prepare with coffee, tea, sugar, etc., or make a short pause, to best experience this beautiful and surreal film!

  10. Davidavich's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Should have been a short film about 21 minutes. Then I would give it 5 stars. Concept is nice - different take on making-of documentary, but editing is lacking.

  11. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    After this film, I will be hesitant to watch Locarno award winners.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    What starts as a behind the scenes look at a film being shot in the Atlas mountains (Oliver Laxe's "mimosas") evolves into a strange adaptation of a Paul Bowles story in this experimental work from director Ben Rivers. Both beautiful and macabre this is a work both radical and enthralling. Well planned and full of beautiful moments with pristine camerawork by the director himself. Not for every taste but should be.

  13. runfromfire's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    "It looks rough and shitty because we're showing you the dark and unglamorous underbelly of film-making." No mate, it's just a rough and shitty flick. Get over yourself.

  14. muse_x's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Well, that got weird, but, at least they recycle.

  15. turnerBroadcast p3Dr0's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    There are scenes from this movie that rebuild the Chien Andalou. Mind blowing. Tour de force.

    So this is how people become Tusken Raiders.

  17. David R Williams's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    I've been reading quite a bit about this one over the past few months and really looking forward to seeing if it was as fucked up as claimed...I am happy to say that it is...and then some.

  18. Samuel Wells's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    The film certainly fulfills the promise of non traditional narrative structures. It is a winding plot, that tells itself from several angles from the beginning. It is also not afraid to slow down and observe the tangents, giving each moment as much weight as the next. Though this philosophy is refreshing, it made the plot difficult to follow at times. Certainly not a film for most, but it still has its charm.

  20. Crabnebula1914@aol.com's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    Not the "easiest" film, but rewarding, it was actually harder to track it down, thanks for providing us with this title!

  22. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

    From 42nd min unparalleled violence, an hallucinated nightmare. The dazzling heat of the sun vs the iced darkness of men. Our civilization & theirs cant merge, Islam doesnt compromise, it enslaves. = Dès la 42ème min 1 violence inégalée, 1 cauchemar halluciné. La chaleur éblouissante du soleil face à la noirceur glacée des hommes. Notre civilisation & la leur ne peuvent fusionner, l'islam ne transige pas, il asservit
