Happy People: A Year in the Taiga

Allemagne, 2010
  • Russe
  • Anglais


Deep in the wilderness, far away from civilization, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia in the Siberian Taiga. The locals, whose daily routines have barely changed over the last centuries, live according to their own values and cultural traditions.

Notre opinion

A rugged journey to the Siberian taiga, this absorbing documentary is a remarkable entry into Werner Herzog’s global explorations. Assembled by master editor Joe Bini and combined with Herzog’s marveling narration, Dmitry Vasyukov’s astonishing footage takes on a second life as ecstatic cinema.

Those who understand harsh climes and embrace them win Herzog’s fascination and respect.

The frequently priceless film is a stream-of-consciousness from a self-selected corner of America that’s weirder and more complicated than it knows.
