The Return, A. Zveyaginstev, Russia, 2004
Two brothers are taken by a father they only knew from a single photograph on a journey into the wilderness. Tantalizing ambiguity turns into an urgent mystery.
“Zvyagintsev gets formidable concentration from his youthful actors, and his storytelling moves with the simplicity -- calm, chiselled, and suggestive -- of a fable.”
“Constructed like an eerie, metaphorical thriller, this tense, riveting character study offers viewers nearly two hours of emotions with a stunning pay-off no one will be expecting.”
A bar will be open serving wines, beers, soft drinks and cake.
