Son's painful memories of his father's lifelong alcohol addiction turn to be traumatic for both of them. These memories make them realise the booze inheritance in their family. Will they get out of this vicious circle?
A paradox: the "classical" plot is almost absent here, but still the movie draws attention from the first to the last minute. Why? Well, movies are about art of vision and sound and this film is a good proof of that. The alternative way to see the rush of the civilised world, noticing what is really important in life - these are not new topics, but here they are presented in a very elegant and touching manner. Superb actors and music add much to splendid photography and very good screenplay. All that would still be not enough, but what really makes this film unforgettable is humour. Altogether, we get a calming, but not boring, touching, but not too sweet and quite... wise film.
