John Shank and Anna Falguères deliver a crepuscular tale, its abstraction as arid as it is romantic, lit up by the unconditional love gripping two children lost in a civilisation in ruins

CINEUROPA

The cinematography by Florian Berutti is drop-dead gorgeous, framing the characters against monumental landscapes that belong in the world of Malick or Sergio Leone
