Movie Info

Adil, a young Muay Thai kick-boxer, has just fled an honor fight-to-the-death. Ilham, an assassin who is also Adil's stepbrother, is promptly hired by the organizer of the death match to kill the fugitive. Looking for somewhere to hide and recover, Adil and a childhood friend take shelter in the Bunohan boxing club where Adil started his career. Ilham, meanwhile, has never been back to Bunohan since the day he left many years ago. Upon returning, memories of loneliness and abandonment flood his mind, and he experiences waves of resentment and regret. Bakar, the third brother, has also come home from the city; ostensibly a respectful schoolteacher, he is in reality a greedy and ruthless person, and is trying to convince his father to sell a burial ground to a construction company.

Critic Reviews for Bunohan (Return To Murder)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The pace of these scenes can be trying -- and would be torture for viewers who came expecting a more conventional Asian crime film -- but it suits the movie's concern with family histories, rural isolation, and the inevitability of development.

The film is too ambitious for its own skills.
