Tense, Absorbing Psychological Thriller
19 September 2007 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

I think this a lot more complete than 13 Tzameti. It has a more focused social and political message, is subtle in its approach, and once again excellent acting and interesting faces. I love films with "ugly" actors and unknown faces like a poser loves his Etnies. Tension is built through the laconic dialog and sparse details about the plot (in a similar way to the Russian film The Return). No back story, apart form a couple of lines, it leaves it all enigmatic and leaves you wanting for more (a good thing in my book). Once again it leaves you with the feeling it could have been even more intriguing, but not to the extent that Tzameti did. A very interesting director who should be watched unless he takes the Hollywood route which hes already on.
