"A film for passionate thinkers."
This strange experiment in filmed conversation finds three people--a physicist, a poet, a politician--yammering about the environment, science, art, government, and much else, all in an effort either to find or to dispute connections between disparate subjects. There is no story, as such--just lots of chatter (much of it not particularly profound) shot against a variety of picturesque backgrounds. If director Bernt Capra thought this would turn out to be another My Dinner with André, that fantasy falls on its face. --Tom Keogh

Though I will not generally make an exception on the screen format (and don't think I ever have before), "Mindwalk" is too good and too hard to find to not grab it when the opportunity arises. I will, however, purchase it again should a widescreen version ever be made available. As extraordinary as the dialogue and characters are, the unwritten co-star is undoubtedly the Abbey, Monastery, Village and surroundings at the island of Mont Saint-Michel. Much of which is lost in view and depth of field to this bewildering format.
I watch it at least every month. Reason: the truth it reveals regarding our situation in the universe at the present moment in time! I am grateful it was created and the actors are excellent! A quick afterthought, I LOVE THE SACRED PLACE WHERE IT IS FILMED!
An amazing movie that, if you have not seen it, may change your world view. If you have seen it, this may be the only way to have a DVD copy so, while pretty pricey, I found it worthwhile to own. I wish some smart promoter would offer the true "American" version with actual English subtitles for the hearing-impaired (which we may all be eventually).
My other wish is that Capra et al. would make Mindwalk II that apparently was considered some years ago but never came to fruition.
I have never had a film that engendered so much discussion and highly critical thinking than this one. The themes argued in the film made for a three day dicussion and a willingness, my students wanted and asked to do this, to write a paper on one of the themes. What ever theme discussed in the film, it's effect and affect challenges one to think about the world they live in and how we perceive the world from a personal to social perspective differently than the Western Newtonian view of the past 400 years. This is truely a piece of Film Literature. The writing is impeccable.
