Play the game. A reviewer on the cover calls the film "uplifting". I'm doubtful that person even watched the film. It's not uplifting at all, because it really shouldn't be. But it does carry beauty in it, and sort of seems to persuade at the end that we needn't worry about mankind's impossible problems, because sand and dust will solve everything in time.
Not uplifting, but I wouldn't call it dreary either.

If you enjoyed any of Ron Fricke's other films, you will love this one. It is an amazing film on its own, but I greatly enjoyed comparing it to Koyaanisqatsi, filmed 30 years prior, on a second watching. While some scenes were absolutely beautiful to watch, other ones had me glued to the screen because they made me think about the impact we are all having on one another and the planet. This film is both enjoyable and thought-provoking to watch, and it is hard to say that about most movies. Now I will sit around for the next couple of decades hoping that Fricke decides to complete his own personal trilogy of films.
Stunning is the best word to describe it. Amazing scenes most of us will never see. Natural beauty, human beauty, man made beauty contrasted with colossal human waste and poverty and the aftermath of violence and natural destruction. It has a beautiful soothing soundtrack which plays behind all types of scenes, the exquisite and the horrible, underscoring the idea that neither are good or bad, but that this is life, that is what Samsara is.
You can't watch this without drawing comparisons to the film Koyaanisqatsi. Koyaanisqatsi, with its often jarring soundtrack by Phillip Glass meant to illustrate life out of balance, where I believe this film, with its harmonious soundtrack illustrated life in balance, but to be balanced, you will find both the exquisite and the horrible, two sides of the same coin called Samsara. This film is reminiscent to me of the "Powaqqatsi" trilogy of films, in that it depicts scenes from many countries around the world, with no narration or musical track whatsoever.
But while "Powaqqatsi" had a rather negative tone to it easy to justify , depicting mankind and in particular the industrialized nations as exploiting, pillaging and destroying both older ways of life more in harmony with the environment, ad the environment itself, this film overall has a more uplifting tone to it. I'd say it depicts both aspects of humanity: our striving for something transcendant, something spiritual, as well as our lower nature leading to exploitation of others and of the environment.
And it hints at a relationship between our own spiritual progress or lack thereof and the earth's response to us. Many of the scenes depict places of worship, from most of the world's great religions. Interspersed with them are many fantastically beautiful natural scenes suggesting to me at least that the earth itself is like a temple in which we can appreciate the Creator's handiwork. And also interspersed are scenes of sorrow, disaster and wrong-doing, on individual and collective scales. For example there are scenes of terrible devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina at first I thought this was from the tsunami off Indonesia in ; probably some coastal scenes from that event looked very similar.
The word "Samsara" has a long tradition in Eastern religions, associated with the idea that the soul is reborn in the world many times in a process of spiritual evolution. One does not have to believe in the idea of reincarnation, I think, to recognize that the title reflects the idea that life is a spiritual journey and a search for the eternal amid the transitory.
One "central" image because the film shows it early on and returns to it again, including toward the end is of a Buddhist monk instructing young students in the art of creating sand pictures. The grains of sand are beautifully pigmented with the most vivid imaginable colors: blue, green, red, gold, etc. They are placed so carefully that it appears pretty much one grain at a time.
RECONNECT WITH NATURE.
The complete image is a type of mandala of great beauty. When it is completed, the "painter" straightens up and they all gaze at the beauty of the work of art wordlessly for a moment.
Then the monk squats down again, and sweeps all the sand away. Gone is the work of art, created with such loving care and hundreds of hours of work. No sooner is it finished than it is erased. One scene in this film also appears in "Workingman's Death" by the German director Glawogger.
That depicts sulfur mining on the slopes of a volcano in Indonesia. Another of what I found the most fascinating scenes is from a prison in the Phillipines the location was not stated during the scene in which all of the male inmates practice a group dance together, set to music while female inmates and prison guards watch on. The inmates are obviously very much enjoying this rather artistic workout. If you watch this it should definitely be in high-definition, as you will miss some of the beauty of the scenes in a lower definition format.
I very much enjoyed this and thought it one of the best movies I had watched in the year. See all reviews. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Amazon Payment Products. English Choose a language for shopping. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.
