Reviews “Beyond the One”

“One of the main images that reappears throughout Anna Marziano’s new film is a shot out of a moving train window, that of a thicket of trees racing by in a blur. (…) The shots resemble Brakhage, but they have a quality all their own and are unexpectedly striking. It’s only about midway through Beyond the One that we realize that these trees are a visual pass code to the film’s major theme (…).” Michael Sicinski on Cinemascope

“Ultimately, Marziano’s essay on love is not argumentative, but poetic. At its core, Beyond the One is without a doubt beautiful, and perhaps one of the rare examples of theory and poetics working together in film. (…) Tina Poglajen on DOK.Revue
