Film review: ‘The Pearl Button’ ★★★★

With what could be seen as a companion piece to his 2011 documentary Nostalgia for the Light, Chilean director Patricio Guzmán returns to UK cinema screens this year with The Pearl Button. An astoundingly beautiful visual essay which revels in the stunning scenery of Chilean Patagonia, it morphs into a harrowing depiction of the nation’s distant and recent past.

The Pearl Button hits limited UK cinemas on 18th March and is well worth seeking out. Visit CineVue here to read the full review.
