Ultimately, the first impression given - of a place both familiar and strange - is the only impression offered. It's not enough.
Gideon Koppel's free-form portrait of a Welsh farming community may be the most subtly poetic piece of cine-anthropology to come down the pike in eons.
This film is best taken as a visual ode to an all-but-forgotten way of life.
Audience Reviews for sleep furiously.
Lyrical , poetic, impressionistic picture of rural Welsh life which oozes warm emotion from every frame. Ode to a way of life that is disappearing day by day. That feeling of sad nostalgia never overwhelms the director, though and he has crafted a thing of beauty.
This documentary unfolds very slowly, using a series of scenes depicting life in Trefeurig, the rural Welsh farming community where the filmmaker grew up. I particularly enjoyed a sequence in which a conductor rehearses an off-screen choir, intercut with some visually stunning landscapes. What isn't here are answers to questions that some viewers may have about the residents shown on screen or events that have occurred. This film is best taken as a visual ode to an all-but-forgotten way of life.
