It is an achingly beautiful, flawlessly acted and carefully plotted story of the fight against nature and evil for survival.

The beautiful images -- much of the time unsullied by anything as manipulative as music -- are enough to rivet the eye and lead the viewer slowly from scene to scene.

Audience Reviews for Simindis kundzuli (Corn Island)


This beautiful and nearly silent minimalist film feels like a true definition of the Art of visual poetry, as it tells a simple yet deeply resonant story that doesn't need words to express what it wants, relying on a gorgeous cinematography and Ilyas Salman in a fantastic performance.
