A brutally haunting tale on the casualties of war and the savagery of man. No punches are pulled from beginning to end, and the atmosphere draws you in to this dreadful yet beautifully executed story.
The main dude is an absolute idiot though.
Might be bias, but without this piece of theater, I wouldn’t be who I am.
I joined theater because I didn’t know you can make shows like this on the stage. I wouldn’t have dived deep analysis into film, theater, or music if it wasn’t for this. I wouldn’t have discovered How I Learned to Drive, Angels in America, Falsettos, Stupid Fucking Bird, This is Our Youth if I didn’t join theater. I would probably not appreciate films of Bergman…
Realistically bleak yet beautifully shot. Triggering commentary on nativity and faith and trying to make sense on the evil that is brought in the world. It is short and simple but the execution of it all, especially with its finale, leaves you cold in your seat.
Powerful on how it presents its simple story and structure but has so much more depth with its presentation.
