    Mettler says his eerie poetic documentary 'is making itself' as the camera leads him around Toronto, Vegas, Switzerland, India. Poignant narration and ambient music patiently guide the viewer to become accessible and receive the films deep sentiments, not always accessible. The piece is punctuated by moments of mutual bedazzlement, earthlings locked in fleeting, pure fascination. The film made itself with Mettler as the in-between, but with a bit of coaxing, the audience completes it themselves - as participants in a patient triangulation.

    Do better at keeping our interest Peter Mettler. Walked out on it at the Film festival. Couldn't keep my eyes open.

    Hypnotic, mesmerizing, but a bit too long.

    Very obviously from the Chris Marker school of essay-filmmaking, but that's doesn't hurt it. It's still amazingly amazing.

    Beautiful images, but when you're not on something to watch this was just weird.

    Long docu artistique assez indescriptible et surtout bourre de petits details qui lui donnent toute sa saveur pourtant assez aigre. Un peu comme un long retour sur des emotions et des sensations oubliees et une reflexion complexe qu'il appartient a chacun de comprendre a sa facon.

    a very interesting and mesmerizing metaphysical discourse of a film. tune in, turn on, and let it unfold before your third eye.

    If ever there was a film that approached a mystical experience, this is it.

    Kolmetuntinen trippi joka muokkaa katsojan maailmankuvaa. Unenomainen surrealistinen muoto yhdistyy saumattomasti arjen kuvaukseen eri maapallon osissa tavalla, jota en muista kosnaan nähneeni.
