Critic Reviews for El Sol del membrillo (Dream of Light) (Quince Tree of the Sun)
In its own minimalist way it becomes a thoughtful, delicate inquiry into the essence of the artistic process, and a tribute to the beauty and mutability of nature. Mr. Erice's film is much bigger than it may appear to be.
More analytical than contemplative, never less than straightforward, Dream of Light makes no showy bid for the sublime.
Any opportunity that's presented to us so that we can enjoy a masterpiece of the caliber of this film is welcomed. [Full review in Spanish]
The Cinematheque Ontario's international panel voted it the best film of the 1990s, which can only lead me to question what they were smoking at the time.
Any summary of Spanish director Victor Erice's captivating documentary would sound more like a warning than the enthusiastic recommendation it merits.
Audience Reviews for El Sol del membrillo (Dream of Light) (Quince Tree of the Sun)
The complacent portrait of Lopez dwells in the silence and state of fine art retaining the elaborate "auteur" detail which makes Erice's study of conversation,nature,intoxicating feeling such a beloved textbook on time's benefits.Perhaps the simple stuff and as naive as it sounds,just watch those two old men reiterating the past,their affections and the still images of youth.
