Customer Review

on 20 October 2006
"Land of the Blind" with Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland, is a timely and satirical political drama on terrorism, revolution, and, above all, one's own inner morality.

This is one of those films that is simple and easy to comprehend; yet it explores so many depths, possibilities, and perspectives that a description of its content is difficult and in any case would be subjective.

The first feature film by the acclaimed documentary producer Robert Edwards, "Land of the Blind" is a masterpiece, a special film that moves and inspires reflection and above all resonates in the turmoil of our media-saturated era.

When well-paid actors such as Fiennes and Sutherland work for a fraction of their usual salary, it is an indication that the film in question either says something artistically interesting or presents a good message. "Land of the Blind" does both!

In many interviews, Robert Edwards has emphasized that the film takes place in an unspecified place and time to give the viewer's thoughts more scope to reach their own conclusions and come up with individual interpretations.

Old-fashioned English automobiles thus mingle with French Renaissance palaces and re-socialization camps reminiscent of Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge.

"Land of the Blind" is a political satire in which our hero, Joe (Ralph Fiennes), undergoes a personal development of the most extreme nature. Joe's experiences and moral perceptions turn him from a loyal soldier into a traitor to the regime and hero of the revolution.

Yet change does not always signify improvement.
