The new year brings us an existential thriller from France, set in Afghanistan: Neither Heaven Nor Earth. A "...gripping mash-up of LONE SURVIVOR, THE THING, and THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT that pits a squad of French soldiers against a supernatural menace far deadlier than the Taliban." – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
Synopsis: French Army Captain Antares Bonassieu and his squad are assigned to monitor a remote valley of Wakhan, Afghanistan on the border of Pakistan. Negotiating control of the region between local shepherds and possible Taliban sympathizers grows more and more tenuous for them as men from all sides start mysteriously disappearing. Unable to explain this eerie phenomenon, the soldiers find themselves embroiled in an existential nightmare, desperate for their own safety.
