The Snows Of Kilimanjaro Review

When a union pensioner and his wife are robbed, even the arrest of the perpetrator can't salve the wounds in their community.


Centring on a politically committed couple and taking its inspiration from Victor Hugo, Ernest Hemingway and ’30s Poetic Realism, the latest in Robert Guédiguian’s Marseilles cycle is a touching tribute to community spirit in an age of socio-economic hardship.

A poignant portrait of marriage and a dramatic chronicle of hardships and justice.
