Curious to know more about the plot of ‘Notturno’ and where you can stream it? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is Notturno About?
Filmed for almost three years on the borders between Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon, ‘Notturno’ portrays the everyday routines of people striving to endure in the war-battered region. Avoiding the conventional depictions of battle and violence, ‘Notturno’ examines and explores the collateral trauma that is inflicted on the people by concentrating on the brittleness of their day-to-day lives. A group of women prays at the place where many atrocities were committed. A man boats through thick marshes in order to fish at night. A little boy wakes up at the crack of dawn each day and waits by the side of a road in hopes of finding some work for the day. A collection of meticulously and thoughtfully composed images and sounds, the film holds an ostensible peace that seems under ever-present threat among battered buildings and scattered sounds of destruction, serving as a reminder that everything could shatter and plunge back into wartime horror at any moment.
