In a popular suburb of Dakar, workers on the construction site of a futuristic tower, without pay for months, decide to leave the country by the ocean for a better future. Among them is Souleiman, the lover of Ada, promised to another.
Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
In Fabric is a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences..
Teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night, an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force know only as The Organization.

Pretty much all of the other crits, I concur with them. But only one mentions the completely unnecessary noise/music/loud monotones that spoiled it for me. The UK limit is reached for way more than half the film, and I am glad I took ear defenders to keep my good hearing! But despite the almost incessant NOISE, it made me think of WW1 trench warfare, bombardment, and hand-to-hand combat throughout the history of mankind . . . Still going on this century, this year, this month; notably on Colombia
