Dispatches From The Frontline Of Guerilla Cinema
“Communion is a truly excellent movie in every conceivable way. It’s beautifully shot, magnificently enacted and has a musical score that simultaneously leads us on the path of understanding, only to veer us off course.” Film Threat
“Paul Marlon is phenomenal as Father Clemence.” Rogue Cinema
“Part thriller and part road movie, Hall’s film takes us on an emotional rollercoaster where not only two extremely different characters clash but the themes of religion and social interaction are dissected.” Taylor Film Reviews
“Hall has done a great job of bringing this film to life, and Paul Marlon gives a real masterclass in acting.” Critics Associated
“It’s a bold effort and it marks out director Greg Hall as one to watch.” Eye For Film
“I applaud British filmmakers who are trying to do something different, and whilst experiments have their failures as well as successes, there are some great creative flourishes to this film.” Battle Royale With Cheese
Revenge thriller “COMMUNION” is the fourth feature film from critically acclaimed award winning Director Greg Hall and his filmmaking collective Broke But Making Films (BBMF). Over the past nine years BBMF have established themselves as producing some of the most exciting independent cinema from the UK amongst audiences at home, internationally and within the industry.
Paul Marlon is Father Clemence, a man burned by his faith, taken to executing his own form of vigilante justice as he takes to the road, in search of retribution. But along the way, he is joined by Maria (Ana Gonzalez Bello), a hitch hiking punk, full of attitude, who is fleeing her home in Mexico City. Together, the odd couple embark on a roller coaster of adventure that is at times both harrowing and heart warming.
Other featured players in this tale of revenge include Roger Griffiths (Buffalo Soldier), Nick Nevern (The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan) and Lee Ingleby (Inspector George Gently, Luther, Master and Commander, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban).
