CGiii Comment

As we all know, filmmakers love to jump onto the topical bandwagon...the result is - usually - a glut of similar films all saying the same thing.

Not the case here.

Ben Allen's film is intelligent and thought-provoking...as well as being devastatingly sad and chilling to-the-bone. Talk about turning-tables to get your message across...this is a supreme example.

Writing, acting, direction...all accomplished.

Simply...stunning.


Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

Fleeing the political unrest in his homeland and journeying through a broken Europe, a British man finds himself seeking asylum on the Turkish border. Desperate, and armed with only rudimentary language skills, he is intent on convincing the authorities to give him a chance at a new life.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
