Storyline

KANDIYOHI is an action packed modern-day western that brings the sleepy backdrop of rural Minnesota alive with violence and suspense. This breakout debut from writer and director Nicholas Engan tells the story of three down-on-their-luck friends drifting through life in their late-20s. After reconnecting during a visit to their hometown, a rapid spiral of drugs, shame, and betrayal will leave them with only one unbelievable option -- to rob the town's corrupt sheriff. When their plan goes fatally wrong, this group of friends will be pushed to the limit trying to outrun the law and its harsh brand of vengeance. It's all on the line in a cinematically stunning finale that will blow audiences away. Written by Anonymous

A promising feature debut
1 March 2015 | by lars13031See all my reviews

I saw KANDIYOHI at a test screening and found several rewarding things about this suspenseful crime thriller from director Engan. He makes very effective use of the rural settings in a lyrical way that reminds one of the silent cinema. He's very good at conveying mood without a lot of dialogue. The quick cuts during one sequence (a flashback, if I recall) had the same kind of bravura editing as an early Van Sant film. There was at least one extreme long shot in the cornfield that echoed Malick's BADLANDS and the connection is that both pictures portray outlaws on the run amidst a rich natural environment. The picture's thematic and moral aspects--which I do want to spoil--are reminiscent of the Coens' NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. A sleeper not to be missed!
