• Elijah

    By Fanny Béguély

  • Forced to run away, Elijah wanders in the gusty winds among the horizons of a seemingly endless plateau. A huge fire tears the night sky apart. In another era which is another world, a widow and her sick daughter try to survive lost amidst a strange abandoned industrial area nestled in an impenetrable forest.

“This a beautiful movie. Interesting movement between an ‘Old Testament’ and contemporary setting and spectacular cinematography: beautiful locations and lovely shots that juxtapose harsh elements against more idyllic natural details. The sparely used dialogue is effective and poetic.” ~Lars Johnson
