It's on my Must-See-Again list.
14 January 1999 | by Jim-249See all my reviews

I'd recommend this film primarily for its visual impact: the photography and the camera work make the natural setting stunningly beautiful. Splendid pictures of animals are interwoven into the very fabric of the film - in fact, a heron is a recurring linking device between the three stories. Each tells of disappointed love; the first hero is a boy, the second a man, the third an old man. They are separate people, but they share a delight in closely observing what they see as beautiful. The narratives are intriguing and unusual: the second, for example, plays with the supernatural and has the largest comic element. I caught this on Belgian TV and it's on my Must-See-Again list.
