Norte, The End of History
director:
Lav Diaz
cast:
Sid Lucerno, Angeli Bayani, Archie Alemania

An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. In Filipino and Tagalog.
