Let me make two things perfectly clear:
1) this is not a feel-good film. This is a film that grabs you by the lapel, glares in your face, and makes you cry. And I couldn’t look away, even when the story was so heartbreaking that’s all my soul wanted to do.
2) this is amazingly well acted film, and while the story about a broken man who has to go back home after his brother’s death isn’t “fun” to watch, it’s amazing cinema.
Bring Kleenex. Don’t be surprised if, every so often, you find yourself laughing at the deadpan, sometimes bleak, humor. A beautiful, rough, slice-of-life story, well acted and directed.
