Katarzyna Al Abbas,
Two parallel tales of redemption, a century apart. A burglar is held at gunpoint and forced to listen to a story. At the turn of the 20th Century, two brothers feud over a woman. She marries one; the other, Luke, a deadly gunslinger, becomes a soldier of fortune in Macedonia, and gets embroiled in a local revolution. He's after money. Wounded by his brother, he's nursed by a pregnant villager who urges him to "kill for good, not for gold." A dying old woman in modern Manhattan tells Luke's story; her listener is Edge, a young thief who's burgled her flat to pay off crooked cops who can send him to jail. He listens with the desperate hope that he'll find gold that he thinks she has. The stories intersect when Edge sorts out the old woman's surprising connection to Luke. Written by
Wonderful! If you don't mind over-the-top violence to people and animals that is. We watched this last night and can't stop talking about it today. I've read reviews from people who didn't get it or didn't like it but I can't think of anything I disliked about this movie. For my tastes, this is a masterpiece of storytelling and suspense, love and redemption. Every character proved to be both more complex and more real than most movies can manage to portray. Rosemary Murphy's performance was absolutely stunning. If you prefer stories that run from end-to-end requiring none of your attention like a TV show, what the heck are you watching movies of this caliber for? This movie is only for true lovers of cinema. I don't want to give away anything but my wife and I just had a long conversation about some of the scenes that even she was confused about. If you watch this with someone else, compare notes, you may have been watching different movies all together depending on your interpretation of who was who.
