Le Quattro Volte

A totally extraordinary film.

There is no dialogue, apart from background conversations among the Calabrian villagers, and so there is no need for subtitles.

Nobody addresses the camera. There is no plot. There is no beginning, middle or end.

Daily events are placed in front of the viewer without comment, and we watch.

We watch, learn, and absorb all kinds of information about life in this little Italian village.  We observe life, death, rebirth, the passing of the seasons.  Man interacting with Nature.

Sounds very pretentious, but it is a beautiful film and I recommend it.  But give it your full attention when you do watch it – it deserves nothing less.
