Strangely refreshing
8 October 2016 | by ispas-paulSee all my reviews

The entire movie is definitely an experience in itself. Most thrillers, currently, feel like cheap re-makes, over-emphasizing things just to get you to the thrill point or are just plainly considering their audiences as dumb-people (except for the Coen Brothers and Fincher... and some other guys that make a movie once every 3 years). Caini is not like most thrillers. It's a movie, not something that can be done in the theater. Its cinematography is brilliant and in most cases it shows you things, it doesn't point to them. It is a slow-paced visual experience that, in many cases, takes you to be boiling point by making you over-think things. Slow shots and very slow technical zooms have the upper hand of taking you into the heart of the action. While the story is simple, and I won't say anything more than just what's written in the synopsis, I'll say that the actors do an amazing job, and the character development is astounding considering the limited dialog. Music and sound are two features that usually destroy Romanian movies by just being bad. This one doesn't. It has, perhaps, the best sound I've heard in a Romanian movie, and the music, little as it is, is actually awesome and carefully constructed. There are plenty of other things to say about this movie. It's funny sometimes and it does have its mistakes, hence the 9 out of 10, but it's one of the best Romanian movies and one of the best thrillers I've seen. Can't wait to re- watch it.
