Bruno Dumont follows up the controversial Twentynine Palms with this tale of a group of young soldiers who go off to war and experience some life-changing events. Flandres won the Grand Prix Prize at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
Chronicle of life in a typical Colombian village where residents and visitors alike are induced by the soporific climate to lead lives of indolence. Not even the sight of cadavers floating in the river can shock them.

Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?Written by
The movie's marketing team came under a good amount of fire after they hired an artist to paint a mural of the film in Sydney, Australia. Apparently, the mural covered up a 20-year-old painting by a local artist depicting animals in a cityscape below the words "it's like a jungle sometimes." This line refers to a song by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five.
Darren Aronofsky was embarrassed about the mural being painted over the historic piece of art and apologized on behalf of the ad agency, Apparition Media. A spokesperson for the agency said they were unaware of the iconic nature of the mural and regretted their "terrible mistake."
The agency has since contacted the mural's original artist and offered their help in restoring the artwork to its original form. See more »

I created an account literally to rate/review this movie
30+ years of watching movies and never created an account. That is how bad this movie was, it made me want to contribute to a lower rating. I would rate it negative 10 if I could. Anyone who tries to sell it as an allegory should never be allowed to review anything ever again. I respect everyone's opinions, but don't even think about trying to sell it with that justification. Literally the worst excuse for a movie ever. If you want to sit there for 2+ hours with WTF face, please see this movie.
