A challenging and rewarding film with astonishing acting and convincing direction
22 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A heart emerges in real life in this a story of an unusual return to family. Chris, the main character, was born into a paranoid and unforgiving childhood, educated to give pain to men, and distance to women. His comments on his mother are strangely disconnected and observational, as if she had been a passive, almost absent presence. His father, however, taught him to respond with an overwhelming disproportionate violence to any threat - however slight - to evoke terror. Through dialogue with the film-maker, Chris reveals his past, and how his new partner and child have led him to a new understanding. Chris' real-life words and his interaction with the film-maker are re-played with astounding conviction by Jason Isaacs.
