This is one of the most raw, disturbing and compelling dramas you could imagine. Winner of the Grand Prix in Cannes this year, The Tribe is set in an institution for young deaf offenders, and the film opens with a new arrival on his first day. However, there are no words or subtitles throughout the film; it is an extraordinary and quite brilliant conceit as it shows how much of our communication is elemental. It opens the mind because the ears aren’t working. Masterfully directed by Ukrainian director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy, this is a not a film for the faint-hearted, and there are several scenes that will never leave you; but it is outstanding original cinema, dealing with big, everyday issues, universal in too many countries. A remarkable picture.
“Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy’s prize-winning debut feature is an audacious coup de cinema.”
The Guardian calls it
“shocking, violent and unique… compelling and explicit”.
