SFIFF54 2011 Film Briefs: “Le Quatro Volte”, “The Mill And The Cross” and the Centerpiece “Terri” plus Trailers

Le Quatro Volte

A meditative, beautifully simple journey through time in the Italian countryside of Calabria. A highly unique film in content and seeming lack of story, which is told through the changes of the country and the fluid continuous movements of nature, in which man becomes engulfed.

The Mill and the Cross

Lech Majewski’s recreation of the works of Pieter Bruegel placed into the dimensions of film, allowing them to tell the story of the Spanish oppression of the Flemish people in the 16th century. Visually amazing; questionable use of English-speaking actors who do not feel like they fit in the film.


Azazel Jacob’s… “came of age”… story about an awkward high schooler as he tries to float through life. Full of unexpected, realistic scenes and empathy for all involved, Terri is a unique film to grace the “coming of age” genre, if it may so be called.
