Movie Info

As fascinating as it is meditative as it is hilarious, Triumph of the Wall begins as a filmed chronicle about the construction of a 1000-foot dry-stone wall by a novice stonemason in rural Quebec. The stonemason, Chris Overing, is to complete the stone structure within eight weeks; the filmmaker, Bill Stone plans the film as a straightforward telling of this laborious yet creative task. But after Overing realizes he has woefully underestimated the time and energy required to construct the wall, both projects evolve into something altogether different. Triumph of the Wall is a film about expectations, about two guys who embark on an eight-week journey and spend the next eight years trying to figure out how to finish what they started...a reminder that sometimes art (and life) is as much about the process of creation as it is about the finished product.

Critic Reviews for Triumph Of The Wall

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

  • Neither the very relaxed pace of this builder, Chris Overing, nor Mr. Stone's sporadically amusing neuroses about his filmmaking make for a gripping documentary.

  • "Sometimes you start things, and you don't know exactly why," muses filmmaker Bill Stone, surely expressing the feelings of everyone who buys a ticket to his aimless, and seemingly endless, documentary.

  • Not so much a crafted film as a compendium of one guy's musings.

  • Navel-gazing documentary that's less about the subject-the building of a stone wall-than about the filmmaker obsessing over the subject and himself. Vocally. Continuously. Numbingly.
