Storyline

An well-off family is paid an unexpected, and rather unwanted, visit by a man claiming to be the woman's long-lost uncle. The initial suspicion with which they greet the man slowly dissolves as he regales them with stories of his travels, tales that are at odds with their conventional middle-class perspective on the world.

subtly builds to crescendo
6 July 2000 | by (Bethesda, MD) – See all my reviews

Enchanting film that carefully builds on its music and bakground and mysticism. The characters all are "agantuk" (outsiders) in their own way, and none so much as the man who prides himself on being most conventional until his world is turned upside down. On the surface, this is a marvelous essay on trust and identity and spirituality. Dig further, it is this and much more.
