Dream of Light

For all my admiration for Victor Erice's first two features (Spirit of the Beehive and El sur), I wasn't entirely won over by this meticulous 139-minute documentary (1992) about artist Antonio Lopez Garcia painting a small quince tree in a Madrid courtyard, even though many of my smartest colleagues were bowled over by it (the Chicago International Film Festival awarded it a Gold Hugo). Like the painter, it's painstakingly serious about what it's up to. Also known as The Quince Tree Sun. In Spanish with subtitles.
