A Hidden Life

A virtuous voice-over rages against God, sweeping shots depict a vivid country idyll and illustrate man’s lowly place in nature, and quick edits measure out a harrowing story in precious, incidental moments. Based on real events, Terrence Malick’s latest epic deploys a trademark style and probes familiar themes of faith and conscience in eulogising the barely acknowledged heroism of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer from the bucolic village of St Radegund, a family man and devout Christian who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. A Hidden Life is a work of substance and significance from one of the world’s greatest living filmmakers.
