Love makes a bad relationship between father and son all the more rancorous in this drama from Hungarian director Viktor Oszkar Nagy. A convict (Janos Derzsi) returns home after a long stretch in prison to a less than enthusiastic welcome; his son (Tamas Ravasz), now in his late teens, was left to fend for himself and tend the family farm on his own after his dad went away, and the youngster blames his father for his mother's untimely death. The father wants to mend his relationship with his son, but the young man makes no secret of his contempt for his dad, and only grudgingly allows him back on the farm. As the combative family tries to plant a vineyard and restore the farm to its former glory, Agi (Andrea Nagy) comes into the picture; she was the sister of the ex-con's late wife, and it's clear that he has strong feelings for her. However, so does his son, and the tension between the two men grows as they vie for Agi's affections. Apafold (aka Father's Acre) received its North American premiere at the 2010 Seattle International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
