Keswick Film Club - The Warrior

Sunday 1st December 5:30 PM

The Warrior 

Director: Asif Kapadia Country: GB/Fr/Ger/India
Cert: 12 Year: 2001 Length: 86 mins Language: Hindi with English subtitles

Synopsis

A low-budget UK film with an epic, big-budget feel. British-born debut director, Kapadia shot The Warrior in the heat of the Rajashani desert and the cold mountains of the Himalayas. It tells the story (based on a Japanese folk legend) of a violent killer in the service of a tyrannical lord who experiences a spiritual awakening and abandons his profession. The majestic scale of its imagery counters the simplicity of the film's narrative. Dialogue is kept to a minimum while the musical score and epic camera-work combine to create an ambitious first feature of great panache.
