Somewhat interesting
23 February 2014 | by zetesSee all my reviews

From Kazakhstan, this is an adaptation of a novel by Anatoli Kim, a Soviet man of Korean descent. When a teacher murders one of his young students, the student's father vows revenge. He follows the teacher from Korea to Russia, but is unable to enact his revenge. He then begets a son to fulfill his legacy. The story itself isn't particularly interesting, though it's not bad, either. The film looks quite beautiful and has a couple of memorable sequences. This film was rediscovered as part of Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project, but didn't make the recent box set that Criterion released. There may be future installments of the series, but for now this can be watched on Hulu Plus.
