Fabrizio De Angelis
Its a pity that not many people have heard of this film. Its a relatively simple story about the relationship between a son, a daughter and their estranged father.
Its one of those movies that get you thinking long after they are over. There are many questions that may arise in your head, and the script is such that it ties up all loose ends. There's not one moment that feels clichéd even though the story could get slightly predictable towards the end. However the superlative acting by all the cast and the fast-paced editing keeps us hooked right up till the end.
Special mention should be made about the minimalistic background score which provides the movie just the right atmosphere. One of the most emotionally powerful movies to come out this year.
