    Most of movies, for me, are the audio. How an actor speaks, how sounds move with each other, how the soundtrack fits in. This one is just shuffling and ambient sounds. It's about deaf people in the Ukraine. I'm sure a rough place to be, and, considering the setting, characters, and events, it is remarkable engaging. As to whether I would watch this film again, I will do my best to avoid it. It's incredibly depressing. I'm sure it's incredibly realistic, and I wish it weren't. There is absolutely nothing positive about this film, and I'm pretty sure the filmmakers were going for that. Good job everybody, I'm going to go cry in the shower now.

    Made in 34 fabulous long takes, this unique and relentlessly brutal film is a revolutionary illustration of the "show, don't tell" cinematic rule, more so as it refuses to offer any translation of the language that we see on the screen and yet remains always comprehensible to us viewers.

    One of the best films of the year so far with a truly original format. An absolute must see!

    After being enrolled at a school for the deaf in the Ukraine, Sergey(Grygoriy Fesenko) has lunch with a random student. Suddenly, he is plucked from the social depths of this society to hang out with the cool kids who rudely introduce him to Anya(Yana Novikova) and Svetka(Roza Babiy). After which, he is formally initiated into this new society. And then finds out exactly what they do after classes and what he got himself into. "The Tribe" is a constructive movie about perceptions. That is fueled by the way it is filmed, namely all in sign language without the benefit of subtitles. This goes beyond being a simple experiment with its exquisite long takes. All of which gives the viewer an opportunity to interpret the actions of the various characters involved, some of which may seem desperate to outsiders, especially as depicted in such graphic fashion. Into this milieu is thrown Sergey, an innocent at first.
