Primal
13 October 2013 | by (Minneapolis, USA) – See all my reviews

A man who gradually lost his way, in contact with other people with the same problem, remembers what is really important. When you sum it up like this it sounds very trite and predictable. Fortunately this movie isn't. Former military man who runs the human resources in the bakery like a war operation, has to accompany the body of a former employee back to unnamed Eastern European country( to those who can read it is obviously Romania). Stark, desolate landscape, country in transition and general lack of hope. Gray, flat land, gray post-socialist buildings and people seemingly gray, too, but only at first sight. There are bright colors of strong emotions, pale shades of despair and shockingly strong bursts of uncontrolled anger. All primal and deeply necessary to keep us alive, no matter what forsaken part of the world we were unfortunate to be born in. There is only one life and one skin and only as much blood and tears we can shed, and as much joy we can sustain before the inevitable end.
