The River
Ghassan Salhab
Lebanon, France, Germany, Qatar | | 101 mins | Drama | Arabic ( English subtitles )

A man and a woman are in a restaurant situated in the Lebanese mountains. Suddenly, fighter planes appear and in the distance, war seems to be breaking once more. Having lost the woman, the man looks for her, finding her on the other side of the mountain. Together, they sink deeper into nature, which becomes increasingly spectral, just like the slender thread that ties them together.
