"A cinematic miracle"
Having fallen in love in Paris, an American engineer and a French-Russian former ballerina come to Oklahoma, where problems arise. The local church pastor struggles with his faith and an old friend emerges from the past.
Renowned director Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, Badlands) has created a deceptively simple love story, set against the stunning backdrop of rural America. His trademark use of natural light seems to suffuse the space of every frame, following the characters, their interactions, their wanderings "as a sort of dance... And the camera dances along with them, in situations of such carefully observed light as to make the results non-material... Malick captures pure textures and tones, as if using the camera to make paintings in motion" - The New Yorker
With Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams.
"deserves to endure as an artistic landmark"
