Drii winter

A Piece of Sky
Michael Koch
Switzerland, Germany 2022
136 min

Marco and Anne are a young couple living in a remote Swiss village. He is an outsider, coming from the flatlands to help out at a farm, she is a divorced bartender with a young daughter and thus a sort of outcast according to local moral standards. Their love story is passionate and simple. Suddenly Marco’s behavior starts to change due to a illness, beginning a journey that will test their love and pull at the entire fabric that keeps the small community together.
Masterfully interpreted by a non-professional cast, DRII WINTER is a powerful tale, punctuated by a choir and observed with the calm ineluctability of fate. But if its structure is reminiscent of a classical tragedy, its story remains very contemporary: that of a community that can no longer connect with its land. Marco seems the only one capable of bonding with nature, of listening to it, while everybody else (including the crew of a Bollywood movie) is too focused on exploiting it to see its immense, fragile beauty. The passing of the seasons and the shifts in Marco’s condition mark the calm pace of a film that shows the slow dissolution of a community beneath the impassive majesty of the mountains. (Rebecca De Pas)
