One of the most brilliant movies of the last years
" Inheritance " is one of the greatest European movies of the last few years. It might seem boring for an average American viewer who is used to Hollywood action movie culture. The film is a great reflection of a real life situation. It is wonderfully acted and very believable. Directing is superb. I would recommend it to anybody who has an appreciation for a fine art of European cinema ( particularly for its ability to depict life the way it is ). This is one of the movies that I would definitely give a 10.
