Like ‘Ida’, ‘Timbuktu’ is a film about a family whose lives are shaped and affected by war.
In the film, cattle herder Kidane and his family find themselves amongst a group of many controlled by Jihadists.
Their every move is controlled, but their destiny is about to change in a harsh way that will hold a massive impact on them forever.
A political movie with a powerful message.
Six years after his last film, ‘The New World’, filmmaker Terrence Malick returns for what is arguably his most daring film to date.
The story centres around a family in Texas in the 1950s, and in particular the eldest son Jack and his journey into adulthood.
Jack’s life is reflected through the relationship with his family and most importantly his father. In the present, Jack must grapple with his feelings towards his father as he looks for greater meaning.
A compelling philosophical journey.
‘Tangerines’ is the compelling Estonian-Georgian released war drama.
Set during the war in Abkhazia, Ivo, an Estonian man stays behind to harvest his crops of tangerines.
Though he keeps to himself, his life is changed however, when a wounded man appears at his door.
An compelling Estonian war-set drama.
Don’t let the fact that this is an animation put you off. ‘The Book of Life’ is an elegantly made film about family and history.
Set in the Mexican city San Angel, this tale follows three young childhood friends whose lives take three different paths.
In the midst of winning the heart of Maria, their beautiful friend, they explore the meaning of their heritage and family origins.
An elegant animated tale.
This South Korean produced movie like ‘Ida’ is a beautifully stunning shot film about philosophy and self-discovery.
A young Buddhist apprentice who has spent much of his young life studying under an aging monk has his morals questioned after meeting a beautiful girl.
Tempted into the real world and away from his life of spirituality, the young buddhist must discover what is really important in life.
Words can’t describe how visually compelling this movie is, it has to be seen to be believed.
A visually stunning masterpiece.
