  1. Aube James's rating of the film Time of the Gifts

    Insecticides and fertilizers have been "cleaning" the soil of microbes. In organic farming, clean soil is dead soil. Film digs deep into its implications on the notion of "bounty" and cultural identity. Agriculture, after all, is the first heritage.

  2. captainfez's rating of the film Time of the Gifts

    I should've spent two hours working in my backyard instead.

  3. Laura Suffield's rating of the film Time of the Gifts

    It's interesting, if just for the prevailing tone of resentment. Clearly at one point, French farmers never had it so good. Amusing loony Luddite character at one point. The scenery is nice.

  5. Schiphorst's rating of the film Time of the Gifts

    Très très bon documentaire, instructif et poétique... Un peu nostalgique aussi mais n'est ce pas inévitable ?

  6. Noémie Monteuse's rating of the film Time of the Gifts

    De purs moments de littérature, de poésie. Un documentaire magnifique qui brasse bien plus que la question du monde agricole... évoque notre "civilisation" toute entière dans ce qu'elle laisse doucement fuir... il faudrait réaliser un pendant un peu plus positif de ce documentaire qui viendrait souligner toutes les initiatives actuelles qui tentent de réparer les erreurs et d'imaginer le futur.
