review by
Mike Haberfelner

The apocalypse has come and gone, and it has left civilisation in tatters. Sure, humankind has lived on, but they've forgotten how to make things, how to organize, how to talk to one another - so presently they live in small tribes of a few dozen scattered all over the countryside. One such tribe is hit by food shortages of late, and the way the mayor (Mike Amason) handles things regarding the food distribution doesn't sit well with many - so much so that Dot (Sanethia Dresch) rallies those who feel disenfranchised behind her and calls for an election ("lection" in future speak). So both she and the mayor start to collect their supporters - to cheer them on in what's called election, a fight to the death in a primitive ring. However, the electorial race soon gets out of hands and - as ever so often with humans - becomes an excuse to settle old scores, so soon enough, dissent and murder become side effects of the political process. And just before the election, Dot has to learn that she might not be able to fulfill her key promise should she win ...

 

More than anything else, Lection is a parable about human behaviour in politics, as while the setting of the film is very much removed from our own, the situations are not. And the fact that this film is almost dialogue-free only adds to its effect, as does its rather sparing costume and set design that lacks any grandeur to detract from the story but has some archaic effect all the same. And of course, a solid and dedicated cast really help making this work.

Well worth a look for sure.
