According to Andy Goldsworthy, there are two ways of approaching the world: You can walk on the path or you can walk through the hedge. And that’s exactly what he does in this magnificent cinematic encounter between the permanent and the itinerant. While Goldsworthy "draws" on staircases with golden leaves and leaves dry patches on the side of the road by lying down on the pavement in the pouring rain, the director simply refuses to let all the beauty go to waste. But, at the end of the day, isn’t that a conscious choice when you’re working with nature? And who is this idiosyncratic work supposed to be for? Presumably, for filmgoers and God, since they are the only ones who can enjoy such a spectacular perspective on the British artist’s largely ephemeral body of work.
