A post-apocalyptic meditation on sanity in the absence of hope
27 February 2018 | by rossbeane-71689See all my reviews

If you want an action-packed war movie, this is not it. Hymns is a thoughtful psychodrama about war and love. Everything, from the wandering ambient soundtrack to the highly emotive camera work is carefully constructed to put you in a strange emotional place. The setting of the film adds further tension by being timeless and familiar. There are no jump scares, no weapons, and no villains, leaving the conflict to reside solely within characters. It takes time to unravel and it's not fully linear so don't bother with this film if you are in a rush or you think you know what you want out of it; but if you are open to seeing where it takes you, it's certainly worth taking the ride.
