Trailer

Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film
Winner of the Golden Lion at the 51st Venice International Film Festival.

The first film made in the newly independent Republic of Macedonia, Milcho Manchevski’s Before the Rain crosscuts the stories of an orthodox Christian monk (Grégoire Colin), a British photo agent (Katrin Cartlidge), and a native Macedonian war photographer (Rade Šerbedžija) to paint a portrait of simmering ethnic and religious tension about to reach its boiling point. Made during the strife of the war-torn Balkan states in the nineties, this gripping triptych of love and violence is also a timeless evocation of the loss of pastoral innocence, and remains one of recent cinema’s most powerful laments on the futility of war. -The Criterion Collection

Film ctic Roger Ebert described it as an "...extraordinary film. Work like this is what keeps me going month after month and film after film...This is a reminder of the nobility that film can attain."
