la belle Verte

Made in France in 1996 this obscure yet deeply significant film was banned in its homecountry and in Russia for reasons unknown. It was largely ignored by the rest of the world.

Using a whimsical, almost amateurish touch it raises profound questions about our inter-connectedness, humanity and self-actualization. It also boasts two of the funniest scenes captured on film, one involving a classical orchestra gone haywire and the other a football match turning into Swan Lake.

Irresistible food for thought.

  1. The film was a treat indeed. Among other things, it gave me the same feeling of freshness as if having a relaxed walk through the park with a friend.
    The orchestra scene was priceless.

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and I fully agree with the analogy of the walk in the park! Far away, so close.
