Jerzy Skolimowski, Italy, Poland, 2022o

s
vBack

The world is a mysterious place when viewed through the eyes of an animal. On his way from one owner to the next, the donkey EO meets good and bad people. He experiences joy and sorrow, but above all how the wheel of fortune turns unexpectedly and with little influence from one direction to the other. At no time does EO lose his innocence.

In Anlehnung an Robert Bressons Klassiker Au hasard Balthazar von 1966 zeigt der polnische Regisseur Jerzy Skolimowski in diesem Alterswerk eine Welt, in der Tiere von Menschen genutzt und ausgenutzt werden. Das ist in so eindringlichen Bildern eingefangen, dass man den Film auch ohne die wenigen Dialoge versteht, weil der Esel EO trotz seiner Wortlosigkeit enorm ausdrucksstark ist. Ein starkes Plädoyer für mehr Empathie mit unseren tierischen Erdgenossen.
