    Beautiful landscapes. That's it.
    Nothing serves to make you feel the pointlessness of existence more than sitting through an hour and a half where only four things happen, none of them surprising or compelling. It would have been an engaging 10-minute short film, perhaps.
    The metaphysical theme, the gentle passing through the cycle of life, told in the four iterations in the film, is
    pretty much adolescent philosophy. I like the fact that it is simply witnessed, rather than narrated or explained, but the quality and insight of this aspect has been overplayed by critics.
    It would be so much more rewarding just to go and sit on a hillside than to sit watching this film.

    It is easy to describe what occurs in Le Quattro Volte; less easy, however, to explain it. Calculatedly meditative yet casually metaphysical, Le Quattro Volte (The Four Times in English) is austere, funny, beautiful, and transfixing.

    If you require a plot, look elsewhere.

    Like the incessant ringing of cowbells in the first two segments, the film may either hypnotize you or drive you stark staring mad.
