A Hidden Life
Terrence Malick is back to his best: "'A Hidden Life' is a lucid and profoundly defiant portrait of faith in crisis. It's an intimate epic about the immense strength required for resistance, and the courage that it takes for one to hold fast to their virtue during a crisis of faith, and in a world that may never reward them for it. It is, without question, the best thing that Malick has made since 'The Tree of Life'" - David Ehrlich, IndieWire.
So we can expect his usual soul-searching, his usual beautiful scenery. This one is "... inspired by a life that is little-known - hidden, perhaps. Franz Jägerstetter was an Austrian conscientious objector during the second world war who made a personal stand for his anti-Nazi beliefs by refusing to take the Hitler oath as a Wehrmacht conscript" - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian.
“ An exquisitely emotional and thorough account of an individual resisting state fascism.”
“[A] filmmaker on sublime form, putting his artistry and obsessions at the service of something frighteningly relevant.”
