The term “slow burn” takes on new meaning in this 2015 festival hit, a surreal thriller set in a sun-soaked future on the verge of catching fire. While Greece suffers a water shortage, Ashraf, an immigrant, is hired to look after a villa. But when a bigoted cop takes his papers, he gets trapped in a Kafkaesque nightmare that grows worse as the days pass. As the sun bakes his brain and the villagers’ resentment grows, Ashraf suspects someone is trying to drive him crazy. Terrifyingly relevant to our many current global crises, BLIND SUN is horror cinema with a sharp political edge. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.
An immigrant in Greece finds himself trapped in a sun-soaked nightmare during one long, hot summer.
Cast: Ziad Bakri, Yannis Stankoglou, Mimi Denissi, Louis do De Lencquesaing
Beautiful movie and very political. Sadly it is the reality very often often and not just fiction. So to agree with one of the fellow reviewers here: "Story was pretty stupid. Not the studipest, but still pretty stupid. Skip it." Yes sadly, the real world do at very stupid.
Kind of terrible NGL... Nice scenery though
Loved the atmosphere of this film. Beautifully done.
Interesting but not a fan ... It was worth a watch, once ...
