Daily life tragedy
15 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

A depressing tragical tale ,in which the three members of the family are incapable to understand each others;the only two persons the father finds to confide in are his own sick father ,beddridden in a gloomy hospital, and his mother in the cemetery;the son does not go to high school anymore but spends his time tagging the walls and the cars with his pack;the mother,and in that context it's almost an anomaly ,is a cop! Nothing dramatical,nothing important really happens ,the director watches his pitiful characters as though they were under a magnifying glass.It could be a documentary about wasted lives,and the ending precludes all kind of sentimentality ;it's so brutal,so unexpected that the viewer has no time to wonder why or to take pity on the character.

It's not a very accessible movie;The director seems to be much influenced by Robert Bresson.
