After The Battle: a Film Review

user
    Xan Brooks from The Guardian says, "Veteran director Yousry Nasrallah makes a melodrama out of a crisis in After The Battle, a film hewn from the headlines of the Egyptian revolution that crash-lands in the Cannes competition on the basis of its urgent topicality, a heart-on-sleeve narrative, and not a whole lot else. Try as I might, I can't see it troubling the judges."A producer from the Short Film Corner at the 65th Cannes Film Festival said that it was a g...

The Rendez-Vous, a favorite New York rite of spring, is presented by the Film Society of Li...
