Serra’s striking, controversial adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote, is a revelatory portrait of the relationship between the frail Quixote and his stout loyal scribe Sancho. Played by first-time non-professional actors, they wander the earth aimlessly day and night searching for adventure. Staged long takes and painterly qualities envelop us in their slow, meditative quest.
