Perrone switches back to color and chooses European painting as the space for his tale and as his land of experimentation. The stage: paintings by Manet, Monet, Renoir, among other chosen artists; still, open-air landscapes put together through their similarities. The characters who move there: two men, two women, two hunters, two ominous creatures (one of them a tiny creature of the night with two eyes and a brutish and wild human body).
Divided in 18 acts, the narrative of this film is limited to showing brief episodes about desire and violence as the fuel of human endeavors, while its characters roam in the woods. And though Perrone adds to this symbolic universe a few classical music pieces, rock songs, and one or two motifs taken from the musical genre known as electronic-cumbia, the real musicality in this film is provided by the sounds of nature which surround the characters. HIERBA represents an intensification of the oneiric dimension in Perrone’s films and another step into the maximalist formal vein which he began at P3ND3JO5. With no words at all, Perrone wagers all on the juxtaposition of textures, on superimpositions, and on the power of face close-ups – these are his main arguments. (Roger Koza)
