Lamb ★★★½

In the sweet innocence and tender beauty of a child the face of God can be discovered. So it is no surprise to me how often I have encountered adults who in their brokenness look to their children for their salvation.

What happens when you bring together such a broken and damaged man and a vulnerable child deprived of love? This movie.

Endearing at one level but deeply troubling at another, with a strong cringe factor. I am still trying to decide how I feel about this disturbing movie. Maybe this is the greatest testament to its success.
