Les héros ne meurent jamais

Aude-Léa Rapin Frankreich, 2019

jsbrocka's rating of the film Heroes Don't Die

The director's juxtaposition of a man's narcissistic search for an imaginary ghost vis-à-vis the real ghosts of war-torn Bosnia seemed like a masterful statement on how blind the privileged are to the bigger issues of the world. Unfortunately, the ending only seemed to show how the director suffered from the same conceit that her "high-concept art" was a grand enough golem to hold the restless spirits of a genocide.
