A mysterious outsider's quiet life is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family.
The longest hour and a half of my life. This filmmaker seems to delight
in closeup shots that linger endlessly on people's faces. There is
little action in this film and little dialogue. But what was most
troubling was the minimalist approach to plotting. It's left to the
viewer to draw conclusions and attempt to figure out what's happening
and why. Character motivations are generally obscure. The two little
kids are adorable, but unless you're a major fan of home movies of cute
children, the long, long segments of kids being kids rapidly get
boring. This is the kind of movie that some critics will praise for its
artsiness, but the general public will find tedious and dull.
