today’s movie

It’s a story of a collective trauma: Australian director Justin Kurzel, whose films are often universe-inspired adaptations with violent accents, presented his film “Nitram” in competition at Cannes on Friday.

A film inspired by the massacre of Port-Arthur in Tasmania – an island off the coast of Australia – in 1996, one of the deadliest in the country’s history, killed 35 people.

From the beginning of the project, the film aroused the anger and fear of the families of the victims, through the film, anxious to see the glory of the murderer Martin Bryant, sentenced to life imprisonment.

But the film is not a portrait of the killer, even though the title (“Nitram”) is a direct reference to his first name, nor was it shot in Port Arthur.

With a very well put together scenario and actors of great accuracy, he manages to describe in a clear and precise way the mechanics that generated the collective shock. It has never been surpassed and has prompted the Australian government to enact a law against guns.

“The film generated a lot of debate and hatred”The director, who lives in Tasmania, was admitted to AFP. But for him the goal of this film is above all “understand how such an act could have been produced”.
