Review: Futuro Beach, 2015, dir. Karim Aïnouz

“Karim Aïnouz’s Futuro Beach is a film that searches for beauty amid the crisis of life. Drilling down on that outline, it’s a film about life cycles; the foundation of its narrative, loose and shapeless though it may be, rests on the human connections made and conflicts waged in the wake of a single death. Aïnouz explores what good can come out of bad and vice versa by treating tragedy as a stone hurled at the surface of a lake. Everything that happens afterward is a ripple effect of mortality – budding romance, fractured relationships, sibling ennui, and the isolation of cultural displacement. If there’s any specific throughline connecting all of Aïnouz’s themes together, it’s the notion that one ending can lead into numerous other beginnings.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
