When a hillside flows like a river

This amazing video clip shows a mudslide in Italy following a prolonged period of rain. The entire hillside seems to flow like water in slow motion.

Remarkable video! Kudos to whoever took it.

looks like it was still sliding after the video stopped. I wonder if it finely took out that house on the right? Maybe more videos and pictures will be forthcoming from that area.
What would a geologist comment about this?
Very interesting.

Interesting in that whom ever took it was far enough away to get a 'big picture' look... And not be in danger :-)

It takes some nerve to stand there on what may or may not be solid ground.
