The War to Come
Marco Pasquini | Italy | 2021 | 80'
La guerra che verrà
Baraq and his platoon live in the trenches in a state of permanent waiting. They are young men who have grown up in a war with their rifle as comfort. Through an attentive and silent observation of the members of the Syrian army, the film brings back to the screen the slowness of life at the front, a very close look at the life of the private soldier in a war of position which never seems to come to an end.
