You Am I

Part of the New Europe Film Festival at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh, this odd but beautiful Lithuanian film is part self sufficiency manual, part surreal fable, part drugged up party. Baron, an architect is building a tree house in the middle of the forest, its a wonderful construction of wood and glass with nifty little gadgets everywhere, built just above a river. There are distractions a-plenty in the form of parties at a nearby holiday cabin, and a conundrum over the nature of reality involving an aspiring writer, but the real enjoyment of the film is in the peace and quiet of the forest and the birds and insects that live there.

This film sounds intriguing. Off the beaten path for sure, but sometimes they are the best.

most of my favourite films are off the beaten track, Billy, more interesting that way....
