Shattering Shadow

L' éclat furtif de l'ombre

Belgium, Germany, 2014


The horrors of war cast young fisherman Adisu adrift in vast Ethiopia. Forty years later, he is a taxi driver in a Northern European city, dreaming every night of his lost love. Surprising debut is dreamlike yet authentic, with no hint of false sentimentality.
