A Master Class in Film Making - The Return review by Glenn Perry

Spoiler Alert

A real masterpiece by Andrei Zvyagintsev. The acting is wonderful, the setting brilliant & very eerie. Even if you don't like subtitles this will appeal as it's very visual with little dialogue. Sadly, the boy Vladimir Garin (who played Andrey) died shortly after the film was released.

Unforgettable contemporary classic. - The Return review by TE

Spoiler Alert

This is a great cinematic experience from start to finish. Everything is blended together with careful skill: the characterisation of the brothers and the father; the stunning visual setpiece scenes; the music; the colour palette; the terse dialogue. It all works together magnificently.

The younger brother gives one of the best child performances in movie history.

I saw this when it was released and many images stayed in my mind. Seeing it again has made me realise what a landmark in cinema history this film is.
