THE LAST ASHES
[LÄIF A SÉIL]
In the northern region of famine- and disease-stricken, 19th-century Luxembourg sits an isolated, deeply religious village under the totalitarian rule of the egotistical patriarch of the Graff family. As punishment for defying their oppressive rules and attempting an escape, 12-year-old Hélène is left abandoned in the woods and forced to witness her parents' execution. Fifteen years after narrowly escaping, as the village is reckoning with the construction of a railroad threatening their sovereignty and the weakening health of the patriarch, Hélène returns under a false identity to seek revenge on those who harmed her. Luxembourger director Loïc Tanson crafts a gory, vengeful take on the dismantling of hierarchical structures in this thrilling Western. DIR/SCR Loïc Tanson; SCR Frederic Zeimet; PROD Claude Waringo. Luxembourg/Belgium, 2023, color/b&w, 120 min. In Luxembourgish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
