Taking a stroll through the village, there are many, sometimes cliché-ridden details revealed: the pastor, the acolyte, folkloric dance, tractors, and animals … The beautifully staged multitudinous “everyday life” ends at the bottom of an impressive steep face. But this is not where the cinematic journey ends: accompanied by increasing breathlessness, the one-shot take leads us alongside a wooden construction further up into verticalness. Arriving on top, we look back in disbelief, into the village far away where we had just taken a placid stroll.
