Wodaabe: Die Hirten der Sonne

Werner Herzog France, 1989

anarresti's rating of the film Wodaabe: Herdsmen of the Sun

Some of the most beautiful dialogues of boys talking about girls I have seen are here. And also of boys and girls talking about what it is that makes a boy desirable. This probably helps us, even if it has no anthropological pretensions, to understand who we are. We hate our bodies. So we either reject physicality completely, trying to be ethereal, mental. Or we deconstruct "beauty", so we're all part of it. *(con.)
