With the film’s first image of a lone elderly man trekking through an untouched snowy landscape, we sense that director Margreth Olin is taking us somewhere special. That promise is fulfilled repeatedly in this stunning cinematic experience, which, with its artistry, has won the support of executive producers Wim Wenders and Liv Ullman. The man is Olin’s 84-year-old father, who invites his daughter to join him to explore the mountains around his hometown. Jørgen guides us through breathtaking vistas of glaciers, waterfalls, and fjords, leading us through Norway’s most scenic valley. This is the place he grew up, where generations have lived in harmony with nature, even when the earth’s primordial forces have shown their most merciless side. But not even the most rock-solid mountain is unchanging – and certainly not in times like ours. Songs of Earth is a majestic symphony for the big screen.
