  • Summary: A lovely portrait of celebrated Spanish painter Antonio Lopez Garcia as he paints the quince tree growing in his courtyard. The two and a half hour film offers perspectives on everything from artistic vision, realism, painting and film to life, mortality and possibility of eternal rebirth.

  1. Gorgeous, fascinating and surprisingly suspenseful.
  2. It's a rich work, lush and lovely and bustling with activity but paced at a contemplative stroll, like a time lapse recording in first gear.
  3. Visually ravishing -- an exquisite movie.
  4. The purity and breadth of this meticulous study are all the more gratifying in view of its unprepossessing style.
  5. 80
    An enthusiastic recommendation.
  6. 80
    More analytical than contemplative, never less than straightforward, Dream of Light makes no showy bid for the sublime.
