A stark, lyrical and affecting portrait of war's aftermath as seen from the edges of the old conflict.
At the final credits, you don't really know much more about these folks than you did at the opening credits. But you've done a good deed for your eyes.
Some films offer up their mysteries openly; others, like this quietly affecting Sri Lankan film, keep their secrets close, revealing them gradually shot by shot, scene by scene.
The 27-year-old filmmaker's command of film language is evident and his evocation of postwar trauma is haunting.
With little dialogue and long takes depicting Sri Lanka's desolate landscape and even more desolate people, The Forsaken Land comes close to being unbearable to watch.
Demoralized characters stuck in a war-torn no-man's land drift from weariness to despair, trying audience patience somewhere along the way.
Only 27 when the film was shot, [director Vimukthi] Jayasundara already displays a complete command of the medium.
The auspicious directorial debut of Sri Lanka filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara.
The narrative is so scant that watching the film's weather is the chief pleasure.
