Review

Could there be any better idea that precisely represents the image of Holland, country of water, than by looking at the world through “water´s point of view?” This is not simply the outcome of a novel idea. As the reversed image reflected on the surface of the water is once again turned over, this documentary of the reverse image is swayed and entwined with the flow of the river and its waveforms, flowing so along with the music. The moment we think we have been looking at the surface of an object, it appears we are peeping into an abyss of the world before we know it. Our situation, deprived of any sense of direction, experiences an enchanting vertigo: we are unable to discern if it´s in the water or out of the water, in the mirror or out of the mirror. By these images, which let us experience the power of cinematographic image brought by the magic of light, we can steal a glance at yet another power of documentary not simply as an antipode of fictional film, but as a container that can deliver the meaning of film art, i.e. recognition and vision of the world.
