I'm quite envious about people who are able to see, discern and paint images about light. It's only been the process of getting older that's allowed me to slow down and actually see what is talked about in this documentary. This doc is beautifully shot; the b-roll a meditation on light and horizon and landscape itself. The discussion about light and whether encroaching civilization has altered 'dutch light' is less interesting to me than the meticulous depiction of landscape/light and reflection the film makers present (while the a-roll about light rambles on.) Good, instructive film (for me it works.) I think there is a spiritual aspect of light that sometimes eludes me. This film has helped guide me into seeing a bit more.

If you want to get a sense of the Netherlands before you visit it, or if you're just curious about it, this is the perfect DVD. I watched it over and over. It draws no conclusions whether or not Dutch Light is real or not, but using science, art and oral history to weave a wonderful wonderful DVD. It was fabulous.

I just watched this brilliant film and loved every minute of it. Do yourself a favor, do not miss it! Following is the description from the European version:

A film by Pieter-Rim de Kroon and Maarten de Kroon.

There's an ancient myth that the light in Holland is different from anywhere else, but it has never been put to the test. It's the legendary light we see in paintings. The German artist Joseph Beuys, however, says that it lost its unique radiance in the 1950s, bringing an end to a visual culture that had lasted for centuries. Dutch Light breaks new ground by examining this renowned but elusive phenomenon. What is Dutch light? Is the light in Holland really different from that in other parts of the world? What is true, what is myth, what is fiction? And was Joseph Beuys right? Dutch Light addresses these fascinating questions. And it is an ode to light and to observation. It turns looking into a new experience.
