Review

Terence Davies’ screen adaptation of a novel published by Lewis Grassic Gibbon in 1932. The story is set in a farm in Edinburgh, Scotland while during WWI. Chris is a woman who dreams of getting away from her violent father and becoming a teacher. Death, disease and violence changes the stubborn family but the land where she grew up won’t let go of her life. Sunset Song portrays a women’s struggle to find herself in an irrational world. Great pains were taken to reproduce a great classic epic in remarkable picturesque scenes created by Michael McDonough. ‘Landscape’ images comparable to Terrence Malick’s Badlands or Days of Heaven express the characters’ situation and state of mind with precise visual language. Classic novel values, endless plains and fields, and contrast between land and sky create a poetic experience. (JANG Byungwon)
