Movie Info

Wartime, 1942. Singapore. An Australian fighter pilot shot down in combat awakens suspended in the treetops. As night devours day, he must navigate through a dangerous jungle in search of sanctuary. Transcending language and culture, CANOPY is a cinematic tour de force exploring the collision of war, nature and its impact on humanity. Aaron Wilson's thrilling, breathtaking film marks the debut of an exciting new voice in Australian cinema.

"Canopy" begins in stillness, ends in muteness, and in between seldom a word will be uttered. . . . All in all, the screenplay offers up two perfect roles for actors with poor memory recall.

Writer/director Aaron Wilson has done many genuinely impressive things here with his largely wordless film. Through deft editing, very good cinematography and some superb sound design he creates a real sense of tension.

Canopy doesn't fully convey the horror and the isolation these men must have experienced. It's a conceptually bold film but not a fully achieved one.

The plot is so perfunctory it's hard to gauge the intended meanings when the hero crosses paths with a Chinese counterpart (Mo Tzu-Yi), the only other significant character.

Canopy succeeds on its own modest, limited terms.

April 30, 2014 Full Review Source:

Khan Chittenden and Mo Yzu-Yi are effective enough within the limitations placed on their characters

A concept film with strong similarities to ALL IS LOST (the recent lone sailor film starring Robert Redford), this low budget debut feature from Australian director Aaron Wilson is all lush jungle and eerie sound design.

Although Canopy is far from the worst Australian film ever made, there will be few that will be as tedious.

Writer/director Aaron Wilson tries to show with cinematic flourish how human nature can respond under stress - by a generosity of spirit and humanity

Canopy is writer/director Aaron Wilson's first-person take on the sensory experience of being lost at war.
