Adam Whybray's rating of the film Atlantiques

4.1 stars. I felt more human for having watched this, which is an amazing thing cinema can do. Anyone who has mouthed off about illegal immigrants should watch this, as should anyone who has had friends to help ward off the darkness. It's rare to find an object that looks more beautiful shot on grainy digital than on film, but Diop succeeds with (what I believe to be) the rotating lamp and lens of a lighthouse.
