In 1921, D. H. Lawrence and his wife Frieda von Richthofen journeyed to Sardinia, where they spent the winter travelling. He wrote a book about his experiences, Sea and Sardinia, and now Mark Cousins retraces his footsteps, armed with a camcorder and an inexhaustible reserve of curiosity. The film is conceived partly as a letter to Lawrence –or ‘Bert’, as Cousins calls the writer, a detail that’s typical of the film’s inviting sense of conversational intimacy. A lively chronicle of Cousin’s own trip through Sardinia, the film is a bracing reflection on a dizzying range of subjects, including (but not exhausting) Lawrence’s creative impulses, fascism, the island’s Catholic rituals and the writings of such thinkers as Hélène Cixous and Antonio Gramsci. The results are witty, intelligent, thrillingly inventive and confirm the prolific Cousins as one of the United Kingdom’s most distinctive filmmakers. Oh, and Jarvis Cocker’s on hand to provide the voice for D. H. Lawrence. EL
