Powerful. Should be an easy Oscar win for the exquisite sound design.

Fantastic performances by mostly unknowns. Ahmed is fantastic in the lead, and Amalric gives the rest of the cast a solid tether.

Only thing I don’t totally get is why his relationship with Louise ended. It’s implied that she has moved on, but it’s not completely clear how or why.
