Movie Info

Sophie Fiennes records Anselm Kiefer, as the 65-year-old world-renowned artist creates a spectacular architectonic landscape. "In 1993 (Kiefer) left his native Germany and settled in Barjac in France, where he bought a derelict silk factory, transforming it into an extraordinary artistic centre... at once the place where his paintings and sculptures are housed and displayed, and a colossal, evolving architectural artwork in itself. Fiennes begins by roaming through the tunnels and corridors of

"Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow" is that rare art documentary - one that places the art front and center, not as an adjunct to its maker's biography.

A documentary that focuses rigorously on process and atmosphere at the expense of context and engagement.

Breathtaking imagery competes with a scary lack of human interest in this hypnotic, potentially alienating documentary about German sculptor Anselm Kiefer.

The camera movements are graceful, almost ethereal, yet the objects themselves - with their impastos of organic and inorganic materials, their metaphoric resonances, historical allusions and intimations of war - feel unmistakably weighty.

Despite its overall tone of cataclysm and condemnation, Kiefer's monstrous works sing more than they shriek. This is highly personal artwork writ in a grand, towering script, and all the more intellectually and artistically legible for it.

It's a mesmerizing experience and a must-see for anyone interested in the artistic aspects of filmmaking, as well as those who are interested in Kiefer's work.

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow provides a series of evocative but also elusive compositions, as well as some contemplations.

It's a testament to how fascinating Kiefer's work is that the film is still enjoyable, if intermittently very dull.

Often boring, tedious and only fleetingly insightful.

Art tourists [get] special access [to] Kiefer channeling creative and destructive energy of boys (mankind? male artists?) in intellectual context and fantastic, adult scale.

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow attempts to let Kiefer's art, and the process by which it's made, speak for itself.

Meanders through the world-making works of landscape artist Anselm Kiefer in reverential awe and little skepticism.

A fascinating, offbeat portrait of a distinctive artist, this film offers very little commentary, merely observing the work as well as the creative process.

Is this a film about art, or about film as art? That's the question asked by Sophie Fiennes' ravishing, hypnotic record of the work of Anselm Kiefer.

It is not a film that offers a great deal of insight or explanation, just a chance to luxuriate in the world that Kiefer has created.
