Film Review by Dan Talbot, 1990:

"Let us now praise this exquisite gem, this masterpiece of humanity….Benicheti shot this film in Cinemascope and stereophonic sound, twenty years before the introduction of digital sound….You hear the buzz of bees, the crackle of fire, the crunch of gravel as if you were experiencing the workings of nature for the first time. I consider myself among the priviledged few for having screened this film. I was unable to speak for two days after seeing it….Twenty years later I am still transformed by it.

    This film was like being in a state of meditation--the zen of simple tasks performed by a farmer and his wife in rural france. Loved the food and company at Washington Place! Great job, Mary! Thanks so much for choosing this film and organizing the meetup.
