Movie Info

When John returns home to his father after serving time in prison, he is looking forward to starting his life afresh. However in the local community, his crime is neither forgotten nor forgiven. John's presence brings out the worst in everyone around him and a lynch-mob atmosphere slowly takes shape. Feeling abandoned by his former friends and the people he loves, John loses hope and the same aggressions that previously sent him to prison start building up again. Unable to leave the past behind, he decides to confront it.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (2)

An impressive debut from Poland-based Swedish director Von Horn, boosted in no small way by the striking, austere camerawork from Polish cinematographer Lukas Zal (Ida).

Sometimes intriguing, sometimes faintly ridiculous.

The tension caused by John's is undoubtedly increasing, but [director Magnus] Von Horn knows how to manage it in such a way that the violent sequences are always unexpected. [Full review in Spanish]

Shooting in Scope, an aspect ratio more frequently associated with vast landscapes, [director Magnus] von Horn often confines the action to a fraction of the frame.

Von Horn plots cause and consequence with patient precision: his tale of crime, culpability and rough justice leaves a more lingering impression for it.

A film where Magnus von Horn built an overwhelming universe, observed by a distant camera that emphasizes the hardness of the behaviors and maintains neutral position about moral judgments and understanding. [Full review in Spanish]
