It’s an organic cinematic experience where little can be explained by reason and a lot is felt rather than understood.
A large portion of the film is set in flashbacks of family life in 1950’s/1960’s South. Another lot though, is set in an unspecified time and space. Be it the internal life of stem (?) cells, the outer space, erupting volcanos, jungle, rocks, salt desert, mountains, ancient temples and the postmodern city jungle of skyscrapers.
The image of family life is intense and slowly unveiled onscreen.
This is not a film for everyone. Not much actually happens. A lot is anticipated. Little is told.
