Lungo il fiume

Down the River
by Ermanno Olmi Documentary Italia 1992 81'

This documentary is an exploration that accompanies the course of the river Po from its source on the Monviso all along across the vast plain. A look onto the river and the world surrounding its banks, cadenced by the words of St. John's Gospel so as to evoke a parallelism between the waters' revitalizing force and divine grace. Documentary-maker with the ability to comprehensively observe and describe the world. Devising the ecological gimmick of a journey along the longest Italian river with an unseen perspective, Olmi seizes with deep sensitivity the relation between man, nature and the supernatural.
