Despite the unavoidable struggles of anthology films, Kwaidan more than makes up for it with visual artistry. The hand-painted, impressionistic backdrops are worth seeing the film for alone. They capture the folkloric essence that presides over all of Kwaidan so perfectly whilst never distracting you away from story or characters.
Hard-edged but beautiful, Capernaum is a harrowing film from Nadine Labaki that fizzes with anger and contemplates with care. It's a superbly directed and wonderfully acted story about robbed childhood has stayed with me since I first saw it.
