13 February 2013 | Youssefa
Heart of Darkness
When it is not biased or superfluous, when it is applied without cheating or posture, the cinematic language proves that movie art is more than necessary : It is essential. Perfectly mastered, Dawn of the World impresses especially by the staggering beauty of the landscape (a kind of original beauty), by the dignity of the gaze on a community scorned and ignored. The film renew our faith in film art and in humanity. interesting thing to note: Dawn of the World seems to have its roots in Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness, a fascinating story of a boat trip down the Congo River to find a man who had gone native, living amongst the indigenous Africans. In Dawn of the World, the river is the Euphrates and the indigenous people are the Maadaans, the Marsh Arabs.
