To accept one's so called fate or to reveal to it. Obedience/ disobedience, resignation/ resistance; is there really a choice?
A political anthropology essay; a novel look at man's relationship with nature and power. This movie will stick with you like a thousand grains of sand.
Essential movie by great new wave director, Hiroshi Teshigahara. I found a review which perfectly explains the essence of this movie:"I've recently discovered the great Hiroshi Teshigahara, his texture of water drops, skin and sand, hair and hope. The film is frightful because of the story, yet sublime because of this complicated "relationship" between man and nature. The character is not only a scared "tenant" of the dunes but his struggles and emotions are entirely swallowed by a holy "sandfall" - a metaphor. Marvel construction of motifs!" 15 September 2013 (Mubi, Cojocariu Claudia)
