Spring flooding forms a small island with rich soil in the middle of a river, new land without an owner. An old man, assisted by his orphaned teenage granddaughter, takes possession of the island, builds a simple hut, and plants corn.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
It didn't convince me as much as I had thought, but Corn Island is still a great film. Intimate in many ways, both with regards to the two main characters, and in relation to character and nature. More thoughts on my website: http://is.gd/LbtQ8v
Sometimes there is no need to talk, when good actors and actresses act well done. This is such a story, show us the a part of the old man and his adolescent granddaughter life. They stopped by an island in the middle of everything and give a life to it.
