Pure cinema.
7 September 2016 | by (Derry, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Visually Benjamin Naishtat's "The Movement" is one of the starkest and most beautiful films ever made. Shot in black and white and dealing with a time of war and plague in 19th century Argentina it should immediately remind you of the work of Miklos Jancso, both in subject matter and in style or perhaps the films of Bela Tarr.

What little plot there is, is shorn away until there is nothing left but the barest of bones. Short scenes that don't automatically appear to be leading anywhere fade into blackness in a film shot mostly at night. The acting, and what dialogue there is, appears improvised and yet utterly brilliant. This is 'pure' cinema at its most basic and on the strength of it I predict one hell of a future for Naishtat.
