A daring and lyrical exploration of alienation and desperation through the intimate observation of a family's inner lives and their relationship to each other and their environment. Without moral judgment, it probes the boundaries of human behavior and the lengths to which people can be driven for love and self-preservation. Middle aged couple, Ennis and Christine, a deaf-mute woman have five children. He devoted his whole life to his farm and his family, but over time, their relationship began to collapse. She was becoming more and more withdrawn. This led to the fact that she increasingly moved away from her husband and spent less and less time with her children. He tried his best to maintain a relationship, but this will lead to a tragic outcome.Written by
Andrea Pallaoro based the script on a news item he had read about an Irish man who called his wife to tell her he was going to murder their children before he did it. See more »
A good one
It is hard to review a movie like this one. Not much action, hardly few dialogues, or any dialogues for that matter. But you are glued to the screen. You care about the characters. You find the leading actress so young and beautiful. You don't know what to expect. Slowly paced development to its culmination moment. And the ending just breaks your heart. Everyone is a victim in this movie. Unfairness of life so to speak. The acting is very, including children. Well done. I love to see new faces in movies. All of the leading actors are unknown to me. I stopped watching movies with overexposed and overrated Hollywood actors and actresses . You can't connect with a character when actors are overexposed by media. And they are usually mediocre actors at best.
