Description: A poetic and atypical nature movie about the different inhabitants of an old-growth forest, on the ground, in the air and in the water. There's no commentary, only the rich, almost palpable sounds of the forest and the magical cases captured by the camera. Although we might sometimes be puzzled as to what's now happening—a mating ritual or the begin of a fight?—the lack of explanation leaves zone for us to associate freely and simply experience the images. The movie offers a close-up view of a wide range of creatures—such as the insect that appears out of the melting snow, gradually starts to transport and impatiently waits until all its legs are gratis so it can fly away. The scale of the portraits is sometimes grand and at another times modest, but everytime filmed with precision, whether in daylight or at night. Time doesn’t seem to matter in this extraordinary piece of slow cinema.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. I am a large fanatic of RJ, Muddy Waters and the Blues in general. It gave some nice in-site into his life and death. There have been so many rumors about RJ and this place some of the myth to rest by separating fact and fiction. I knew there was a Robert Johnson, Jr. who got a settlement from the estate of RJ. There was also a stepson, who gave some nice input into his life. The Blues researchers and musicians who focused on his melody were nice to listen to also. I sincerely suggest it for any Blues enthusiast.
