This movie was sweet and simple but truly amazing.
If you believe that another world that works for everyone is possible this movie shows us that it could be.
In my opinion, The Green Beautiful is quite possibly one of the nicest films ever made. A simply delightful, witty and endearing film that leaves you feeling uplifted, inspired and highly motivated.
Written and directed by Coline Serreau released in 1996. The message the film portrays about how detached we have become from nature and our roots is brilliant in its simplicity and power.
Even though the film was made in 1996, this is still by far one of my most favourite inspirational videos to date.
You may be surprised to learn that it was unofficially prohibited throughout the EU by media holders. Since 1995 it hasn't been shown on TV except a couple of times very late at night and never on mainstream channels.
Universal Language- You can also see this movie with Spanish subtitles! Que bueno!!!
The film is French with subtitles for many languages (click the red 'CC' symbol below each video to select the correct language).
Due to YouTube time limits, it has been split into the nine episodes you see below, but don't let that put you off - it's well worth watching!
I am wise even from within the womb of my mother. I am the woman of the winds, of the water, of the paths, because I am known in heaven, because I am a doctor woman. ~ Maria Sabina
The entire cosmos is a cooperative. The sun, the moon, and the stars live together as a cooperative. The same is true for humans and animals, trees and soil. Our bodily parts function as a cooperative. When we realize that the world is a mutual, interdependent, cooperative enterprise, that human beings are all mutual friends in the process of birth, old age, suffering and death, then we can build a noble, even heavenly environment. If our lives are not based in this truth, then we shall all perish.
— Buddhadasa Bhikkhu
"If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self transformation." Lao Tzu
