Was beginnt wie das entrückte, dialogbefreite Badewochenende eines belesenen Berliner Studentenpärchens, entwickelt sich in der Folge zur experimentellen Seen- und Seelenkunde, die stumme Wahlverwandtschaft sucht mit Pflanzen, Tieren und im Wasser versunkenen Dörfern, einer nichtmenschlichen „Geografie der Wunder“. Die an klassischen Landschaftsansichten geschulte Kamera der ersten Episode wird zusehends fluide, mehr Fischflosse und „liquid cinema“ denn übers kontrollierende Auge vermittelte Aufnahmeapparatur. Im Ufergras des Stechlinsees dann umschlungen Träumende, die träumen, dass sie träumen, während der Tausendfüßler übers Zeltdach kriecht. (Stephan Settele)

In Anwesenheit von Dane Komljen und Zsuzsanna Kiràly (Produktion).

Three different main characters for three episodes shot in the different textures (three formats: digital, film and analog video), make up this delicate meditation on the mystery of the whole and the parts, and as well as upon the place of our species among other species, acknowledging without emphasis the singularity that defines it, language. Some of the characters are biologists, others perhaps members of religious orders, and the others do not display any attribute that determines them, except the fact of having a body and existing. Everyone enjoys the forests and mountains, feels the immense pleasure of diving and floating in the still waters of a lake.
Everything that is seen and told can be experienced as if it were a kind of poetry constructed by geometric compositions in which the scale of each shot indicates a relationship between the one and the many, shots are combined with spoken and written texts, many from great writers, that nuance the beauty of the shots with symbolic suggestions kindly suggesting a path of interpretation. However, such a hermeneutical plus is not essential because the sensory pleasure of the aesthetic proposal is sufficient for an immersion into the physics of the world and its images. (Roger Koza)
