    • Synopsis
    • The island hidden from the world and its post-industrial reality. Ile de Pâques is an artistic vision which tries to preserve the reality, and is like a moment frozen in the walls of small village, Brossac (Charente Sud, France), where the signs of globalization are not visible yet. There are people and their concerns. Everyday life and the past design the monolith of the surrounding world and form the consensus of individual human lives.
      Poetry and music fashion a unity with nature, and ask a question: What is the meaning of hope? Time passes slowly, rhythmically metered by sunrises and sunsets. Nevertheless, the fate of the human and destiny hide individual tragedies and sorrows. Therefore, each of characters has its own and individually definition of hope. The film shows places where the spirits of the past, shown by the personalities on the screen, penetrate to the real world. Personal tragedies of principal characters are reflected in the purpose of the others, and jointly outline the new reality of the French province. There is no McDonald's, but there are several local and tourist destinations, providing the identity of culinary and life culture in France. The local inhabitants prefer inartificial answers and unaffected definitions of the reality. It embodies, however, a profound philosophy of coexistence of the man and the nature. The movie tries to conserve that time and place for future generations. Ile de Pâques brings into play an experimental form of a motion picture and narration, with the dramaturgy based on ancient canons. There are natural actors in the movie but nothing is accidental. This is the shortest review for a movie called Ile de Pâques.
