Iain Dickie’s review:
8th In the letterboxd film festival
Beautifully acted and shot,with a real slow burning story that I like.
The scenery is breathtaking, It really shows another side to Russia.
There is not much to the plot, father comes home from a long absence and takes his sons away for a trip. But it's the questions raised that are interesting, where has he been, can they trust him, is he using them and where is he taking them, and the answers are only hinted at leaving the viewer to answer them.
I watched this when it came out and loved it, and that hasn't changed.
