Gustavo's Review of Samsara

5 years ago via Flixster


Samsara as the encyclopedia explains: is the meaning of continuous flow, a cycle of birth, death and rebirth. This is the name of the film under the same name by the same team behind Baraka and Chronos. After 20 years Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson reunited to tell another story, only without words. Besides Baraka, you can't compare both of them and try make a point, there are two different films, with different pace and style. Samsara try to explain human cycle as its best. Technology influence the wheel of life, it move us, from the creation, use and expiration date we can see how a useful object can be dangerous as waste. The force continuity animal cycle as the wheel turn to a chicken or a cow, that been forced to mass produce to feed the world. All this is happening while we still admire our world growing, changing, but also falling apart.

Divided by war, natural tragedies and religion. We coexist in a planet where all think different and we still connected by a constant cycle that bring together and separated later. The film is beautiful, the images captured are gorgeous and the music composed is a true gem
