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

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.
