Two parallel tales of redemption, a century apart. A burglar is held at gunpoint and forced to listen to a story. At the turn of the 20th Century, two brothers feud over a woman. She marries one; the other, Luke, a deadly gunslinger, becomes a soldier of fortune in Macedonia, and gets embroiled in a local revolution. He's after money. Wounded by his brother, he's nursed by a pregnant villager who urges him to "kill for good, not for gold." A dying old woman in modern Manhattan tells Luke's story; her listener is Edge, a young thief who's burgled her flat to pay off crooked cops who can send him to jail. He listens with the desperate hope that he'll find gold that he thinks she has. The stories intersect when Edge sorts out the old woman's surprising connection to Luke.Written by
This art house production was funded by lottery UK money, which is unusual in itself. Another aspect again that is out of sorts, is that the film originates from Macedonia and so does the director Milcho Manchevski. 'Dust' is a highly original and almost subversive take on the usual western themes and at times reminded me of the very strange 'El Toppo' (by Jodorowsky). As a movie it is quite incomparable and to it's advantage has none of the pretensions that curse many independent pictures. The narration by an old lady jumps back and forth, right through the generations and contains some excellent battle scenes, that sometimes are hyper realistic and others pure fantasy. Out on a limb.
