The Green Beautiful (La Belle Verte|French Film) – 9 parts

24 11 2010

The comical film provides a rare insight and bold extraterrestrial perspective of life on planet Earth from an alien who revisits her Earthly origins only to discover unbearable living conditions due to pollution, industrialization, disconnection with nature, disease, etc.  in contrast to her home world in which individuals live hundreds of years in a collective society, honor nature, develop supernatural abilities, family oriented, etc. The film stars Colline Serreau, Vincent Lindon, a young Marion Cotillard et al.

“This is a beautiful French film that teaches us the importance of living close to nature. This film certainly makes you think about the way we live on our planet. No doubt about it, the idea for the film is quite original. A lady from a remote harmonious and peaceful planet is sent to earth for the first time in 200 years to see how the earthlings are doing. Her reaction to earth’s current state, pollution, noise, cars, big trees is quite hard-hitting and honest. The film is filled with beautiful scenes shot in the Auvergne region of France, a region of distinct turf-coloured volcanoes.”  Review from
