At the very beginning of the movie, as the boy walks toward the cabin, there is a battle - obviously miles away - occurring over the hill.

THE RETRIEVAL is One of The Best Movies I've Seen.. EVER!
This has to be the most beautiful movie I've seen in a long time. It's pitch perfect in almost every way.
I saw this film at the 13th Phoenix Film Festival, where it received much deserved awards for directing and the ensemble acting, as well as being voted the audience favorite.
D'JANGO UNCHAINED was about slavery, its brutality, the violence, the humiliation, and the nightmare. THE RETRIEVAL addresses slavery and allows it to be a thread to its story by neither shying away from it nor allowing it to overwhelm the narrative. It's about the bond between two characters and the sacrifices they make.
Every character is rich and real. There's humor, tragedy, a riveting story and beautiful cinematography.
This film deserves to be seen, and everyone connected to it deserves an opportunity to continue their work.
