Abraham's Valley

One of the most annoyingly verbal films I’ve seen outside of educational videos, but I'm sure the terribly translated version I watched sucked all the poetry out of it. Should have been sensual, fecund and florid, but was awkward, stale, and clumsy. I was going to give it a much better rating before I read that it was based on a book, but I can’t even give it credit for the interesting premise.
