DAYS OF HEAVEN

Richard Gere stars in this 70s take on life in the early twentieth century.  A slide show of snaps, from the ear, sets the stage for a love story with tragedy foreshadowed from the start.

The change of setting from crowded urban Chicago to the vast rural spaces of the Texas panhandle give the viewer a glimpse of the previous century’s growth.

For me, the best parts of the movie were the reproduction of a harvest season with some beautiful camera shots of wheat and landscape.
