Black Bread is one of SFIFF's more understated films, despite a few fairly grotesque moments. It has some interesting camerawork, solid performances and an intriguing story, all of which make this one worth a watch.
While history is important to the narrative, the director cleverly subverts the audience's expectations, slowly revealing a much more nuanced and layered film, with a disturbing mystery at its core.
It brims with evocative images and half-buried horrors.
While I didn't like it in whole, I surely did like it in parts. It was intriguing in parts which consisted of twists and turns; few unexpected while the rest of 'em were predictable. But predictability didn't serve as a big-time drawback for this one. The movie concentrated on (or boasted of, take your pick) human ideals and how they change their shape as per the circumstances. It's quite well told via the story of a child's troublesome life. What I didn't like was certain loopholes and a few things left unexplained (and the latter might be intentional). All the actors were new to me, but most of them gave a remarkable performance, especially the child playing the role of Andreu.
Not highly recommended, but it's watchable enough..... Well, at least IMO (which are always honest).
