Movie Info

The Prophet takes Kahlil Gibran's classic book of poetic prose, and spins it into a cinematic exploration of love, life and loss. An intimate narration, performed by Thandie Newton, counterpoints the minimalist score with images shot around the world, creating an extraordinary tapestry of people and places.

Tarn's expansive, intimate, lovely film lets us share the connectedness of humanity, as we see lovers, workers, families all over the world getting on with the business of being alive.

Tarn is persuasive, and you can't help but respond to the boldness, intelligence and creativity of his film-making.

A visual essay that owes something to Werner Herzog and Chris Marker.

Might not want to make you reach for Kahlil Gilbran's source material, but you'll want to watch the film again.

Gary Tarn's use of digital video and 16mm film provides sumptuous visual texture, but it's a retrograde step from Black Sun, his Bafta-nominated debut.
