A troubled Air Force veteran finds clues to his buried memories in his daughter's art, while confronted by a mysterious figure from his past looking for answers of his own. Winner of 11 film festival awards, REPARATION is a powerful psychological thriller that swirls like a funnel cloud around Bob Stevens, a small-town vegetable farmer with a three-year hole in his memory. When a mysterious stranger, Jerome, shows up claiming to have been his best friend from the Air Force Police, Bob's peaceful existence begins to unravel from the outside in. Bob's entire family is caught in the storm, but none more than his eight year-old daughter, Charlotte, who discovers that she might hold the key to conjuring Bob's forgotten past. As Charlotte comes to learn, every time something happens that knocks us out of balance, we try doing something that will knock us back in. That universal theme of balance is the heart and soul of REPARATION.Written by
After reading all the excellent reviews I gave the film a shot. Okay, it was a decent movie. If you allow yourself to buy the daughters ability to somehow telepathically see her fathers memories and then draw them, yea it is a decent movie and propels the movie towards its dramatic but still somewhat lacking finale. I just couldn't buy it. It seemed to me like it was part "A History of Violence(2005)" with a son inheriting his fathers killer instinct thru observation as well as DNA(?)(a more plausible story IMO), and other times like so many other movies about memory loss, like Momento. The whole movie depended on the young girl and her drawings and that was too big a leap for me. Good acting, but not Oscar level by no means, good sequencing and good music but a story hard to buy.
