The Return (Russian) - Wogma Readers Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

What a debut! Andrei Zvyagintsev’s hypnotic suspense thriller, The Return, is one of the best films to come out of Russia. Eerie, brooding and cheerless, this film kept me guessing like none other. A story about how the lives of two young boys are shattered when their father suddenly re-appears after a period of 12 years, The Return is cold, deep and flows like a calm mist, until it arrives at a climax you’d never have anticipated. Winner of the Golden Lion at Venice International Film Festival, nominee for Best Foreign Language Film at Golden Globes, Academy Awards and for the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival.
