Albert Serra, Honor of the Knights, 2006

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.

Dir. Albert Serra. 95mins, 2006, Spain
