Pure thoughtful cinema, sprinkled with symbols as a synthesis of knowledge. The first movie of this rubric is La cinquième saison (2012), directed by Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth.
(Spoiler alert) A small rural community is upset by absurd natural phenomena, the cycle of seasons breaks and generates a sort of perpetual winter, not only climatic.
It causes a social crisis, which culminates in the loss of apparent innocence and the explosion of a premeditated violence, part of human nature and therefore ineluctable, like the progressive cromatic desaturation of this filmic representation.
This is truly a Flemish painting in motion, which communicates with an atavistic grammar, made up of almost imperceptible dialogues and a narrative dimension that moves gradually to a grotesque and unacceptable level of reality. Bosch and Bruegel would appreciate this.4 hearts
