‘All These Creatures’ is the Seventh Official Selection

All these Creatures, the 2018 Palme D’Or winner at Cannes, is cinema at the height of its powers. Everything is maximized for complete emotional impact. The acting is brutally honest, the writing perhaps even more so. It’s the type of film that stays with you for months or years, and perhaps shifts your awareness of yourself and life as a whole so dramatically that it becomes a life-changing experience altogether.

This isn’t merely a film about a father and son, domestic violence, or mental illness. This is a film about the essence of life, struggle, and the pursuit of happiness.

 

Synopsis: An adolescent boy attempts to untangle his memories of a mysterious infestation, the unravelling of his father, and the little creatures inside us all.
