Critic Reviews for Before the Rain (Pred dozhdot)
In this triptych of inhumanity, Manchevski answers that, finally, man's humanity is as immutable as his violence. And that, finally, love is a given that keeps on giving.
We'll have to wait for Manchevski's next feature to know whether he's an artist or a shrewd entertainer. In the meantime, Before the Rain is one of the more worthy efforts of the season.
It shakes you up the way many other notable foreign-language film debuts once did -- films like"Breathless, The 400 Blows or Knife in the Water.
[This] eerily beautiful film constantly reminds us that there is an irresistible fascination, an absurd and terrible beauty, in the violence of our times.
Audience Reviews for Before the Rain (Pred dozhdot)
*On my "best of the 1990s" list.
A very deep film that emphasized the inescapability of violence; I thought this film was wonderfully shot including a great storytelling arc and brilliant structure to the entire plot.
If you can find it, get it for sure!
