Werckmeister Harmonies

The urge to assign meaning to the amorphous events in this movie is a trap for busy minds. My personal tendency would be to apply a sort of Zoroastrian interpretation and use the shadow against light elements for support but I would be just busying my brain. It's more like a drawn out poem about time or maybe not letting time slip away ... I did it again. The beer hall is in a village and it is winter and it is cold. A truck with a stuffed whale parks in the main square. The villagers are uneasy and talk about danger. Maybe it's just a rambling fairy tale with no particular plot. It is certainly dreamlike.
I have no idea what the movie is about but I enjoyed it.
