“A sombre spiritual war epic which surges up to claim its place among the director’s most deeply felt, sturdily hewn achievements.”~Tim Robey, The Telegraph

Aroview: Historical drama of distinction from writer director Terrence Malick (THE THIN RED LINE), depicting the life of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian peasant farmer who refused to fight for the Nazis in WWII. Arrested and taken to prison, he finds strength in his Catholic faith and in his enduring love for his wife, who is increasingly ostracised from their small rural community due to his political dissent. A beautifully poetic and spiritual film about human resilience, with strong messages about the complicity of church and state that remain relevant.
