Recommend this film

Three elderly country bachelors idle away their time amidst semi-wild nature, closer to birds and pond fish than to humans.

Director’s note

I received a spam „Gold Dust Sold”. I recited these words like a poem – gold, dust and sold. Till I caught myself at a thought, to refer to film theorists’ texts, that I was influenced by something like Kuleshov’s (others call it Eisenstein’s) effect – two images create the third one. In this case the three words create everything. Or three men create everything. That the water is wet, the morning is early and the space between stench and scent is reality. And that at least occasionally one should get up and leave one’s daily life. Not go too far but where there are people, birds, grass, trees, work, holidays, joys, sorrows, running, stopping. Perhaps this film is rather very simple instead of very complicated – about our physical and spiritual understanding of the world simultaneously. It is about the fact that there are people. And also birds, and fog, the sun, night and so on. That everything exists.
