Original Title:

Norte, The End Of History

An innocent man's family suffers, as Lav Diaz reworks Dostoevsky’s Crime And Punishment as a slice of Filipino realism in this engrossing, exhausting epic, which is both technically audacious and emotionally devastating in its denouement.

Filipino maven Diaz delivers a bravura, literary human drama that does justice to its great source material.
