5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, difficult, necessary, inspiring, May 6, 2013
This review is from: War Witch (DVD)
This is quite simply one of the most outstanding films I have ever viewed. Once having connected with the characters, it is impossible not to desire to follow their tragic, yet human and uplifting story. The film-making technique is incredibly subtle, and the work of the indigenous actors approaches flawlessness. Mood and atmosphere are conveyed consistently through the work of the camera, the setting of the scenes, and the moments of emotional communication by the actors. In a suppressive environment, the subtlest of gestures takes on deeper layers of meaning. This is an entirely inspired piece of film-making. This has instantly acquired a place in my informal "top ten" list. If there were only ten films I could keep to watch again, and then again and again, this would be one of them. You will thank me if you watch this film. I'm not saying it's easy. Far from it. But you will understand more about almost everything for having done so. A work of brilliance and stunning insight.
