A True Original: Alberto Cavalcanti


The residents of a British village during WWII welcome a platoon of soldiers who are to be billeted with them. The trusting residents then discover that the soldiers are Germans who proceed to hold the village captive.

Our take

Today we begin a three-day, triple feature tribute to director Alberto Cavalcanti, a Brazilian initially known for his avant-garde and documentary work, who made mainstream films films in Britain and France. We begin with perhaps his greatest drama, a darkly thrilling vision of Nazis in WW2 Britain.
