Abstract The minimalist aesthetic of Gus Van Sant diplays a story eschewing the causal mode of narration that is typical of narratives. The simple events are organized according to the unity of time, place, and action, like in a classical tragedy: two young people get lost in a desert. The emotional memento builds up through extremely slow long shots lasting sometimes nine minutes: the thurst and fatigue of the two protagonist pervade the viewers, until one of the two kills the other in order to save him from a horrible death. Importance of the music by Arvo Part : his minimalist music increases the strong impact of these extremely reduced but powerful story.
