A film by Boris Lehman
Poetic and philosophical variations around the theme of Paradise lost, or the necessary loss of innocence to obtain knowledge. Here, a dozen men, women and children attempt to discuss in solitude with nature, water, the sky, flowers, trees, insects ... in search of silence and the invisible, everything that today's city and society tries to hide and suffocate.
Their screams, their messages cross and answer each other, like echoes in the mountain or waves in water, representing the essence and breath of the world.
"More than a lesson of philosophy, 'Life lesson' is a way of living, an art of perceiving life. Here we find the stenghts that made the beauty of 'Babel', an invention of present speech that ignores the onward march of progress and history. We rediscover the fundamental questions on our trampled community, torn from the natural world, the fundamental anxiety born from rationalized communication, effectively and constantly imposing between us and the cosmos the discourse of social groups, truths of the State or society."
- Philippe Simon
