Holland / Euskadi (North Spain & France), (MIFF 1984)

Director: René Roelofs

A truly marvellous counterpoint to "Time", This sensitive portrayal of Basque peasant life effortlessly achieves a deeply moving poetic vision that responds to the "figures" and movements of a popular ballad. At a crucial point in the film colour is allowed to penetrate the soft white and grey hues that dominate the passing of time. "I have never quite felt so much trust and love from a filmmaker towards his subject before. "Euskadi" is a simple film. Simply brilliant.”(Don Ranvuad).
