A father, blinded by hate, uses his daughter to take revenge on the killers of his wife.
The story has the feels of a Greek tragedy, with little place for hope or relief...
An old man, living in solitude, looking back at meaningful events in his life.
There's hardly any dialogue, but the pictures do the talking. Quite a lot of symbolism that went straight over my head, but that didn't really bother me.
Shot in beautiful black and white, but the white can be quite overwhelming...
Well, it's been a while since I've heard such honest conversations in a movie. That guy can write a line or two!
He can also mess with your head. He can make you feel smart: "Oh, that's why he's going nuts. Oh, I understand... I've seen that before!"
Anyway, best Karaoke scene ever!
The way I take this movie is that one has a choice: you can either live your life, experience it to the fullest (as most people in these clips did), or you can spend your life thinking about life: structuring and re-structuring it, labelling and re-labelling it, connecting dots and re-connecting them (as the people who voluntary signed up did).
Either way... the clock is ticking.
