Overview

How does one remain innocent in a violently dark time? From singular auteur Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, Days of Heaven) comes A Hidden Life, a wildly ambitious and exquisitely absorbing true story of resistance. It’s 1939 in the small villages of Austria and married peasant farmers Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl) and Franziska (Valerie Pachner) are torn from each other when war breaks out. Pressured by his community to swear an oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich, Franz conscientiously objects to the conflict and refuses to back down. Faced with the threat of execution for treason, it’s only his unwavering faith and love for his family that keeps his spirit alive.

"A sombre spiritual war epic which surges up to claim its place among the director’s most deeply felt, sturdily hewn achievements"
— The Telegraph UK
"Breathtaking in every aspect ... Malick’s masterpiece makes a great argument that it’s the little-known heroes that truly form the ethical foundation upon which our society still creakily rests"
— Film Threat
"The most soulful war movie since 'The Thin Red Line': elegiac, emotional and exquisitely shot"
— Total Film
"This is the filmmaker on sublime form, putting his artistry and obsessions at the service of something frighteningly relevant"
— Empire

Why You Should See This Film

Premiering in competition at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, Malick spent almost three years in post-production, painstakingly editing and restructuring his latest masterpiece. With a shooting crew numbering just 30 people, A Hidden Life is an unusually intimate and quietly emotional vision of war, drawing cinematic inspiration from both its heroic protagonist and George Eliot’s 19th century novel Middlemarch.
