'Mill and The Cross' movie review, trailer: A contemporary, Flemish masterpiece

At one point, Bruegel reaches in to arrange the drapery of a piece of fabric. The painter can attend to details like this, but he cannot change the course of the day’s events, the mother’s grief or the solemn parade to Calvary. Nor can he stop everyday life from continuing even in the face of religious repression, death and martyrdom.

Majewski reportedly spent three years making “The Mill and the Cross,” mastering new computer generated technology and 3D effects. The result is a tapestry as much as a painting, weaving layers of daily life with dramatic events. Each camera shot is a work of art in itself, then arranged by the artist to create the final moment captured in the finished panorama.

“The Mill and the Cross” opened Wed., Sept. 14 at Film Forum on West Houston St. in Manhattan.
