The naturalist film maker Mikael Kristersson has distinguished himself as a peculiar, original artist. This film, which is a portrayal of life at his estate in Falsterbo, is no exception. Without any flattering commentary, the viewer is taken on a calm and quiet ride through Kristersson’s world with nothing but the eyes and ears of the camera. The sounds of people walking their dogs, the rooster crowing and the dripping icicles in some ways becomes almost as important as the crane calling from the sky. But in the end, the most capturing elements is perhaps the fascinating studies of rising little birds or the diligent bees building their nest. Gunnar Bergdahl rates the movie 5 out of 5 in Helsingborgs Dagblad and compares the film to a piece of poetry by Tomas Tranströmer.
