It's The Earth Not The Moon

Portugal 2011

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 7.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes Average Rating 6.6/10

My ratings 7.0/10
A documentary of an isolated island and its inhabitants.

My impressions:

Pristine, that is the first impression
Idyllic, bucolic

A small island
A small population
Everyone knows each other

Outsiders come and
Some stay
For reasons of their own
Finding that peace and solace
They were searching

But others want to leave
As the island is not
Big enough, challenging enough

An island isolated
The presence of man, alas
Has changed its character
Fortunately, not too much
At the moment

But we are not sure of the future
