Description

Director-Andrei Zviagintsev.

A mixture of psychological thriller and road movie, The Return tells the story of two young brothers, who must cope with the sudden and unexplained return of their long absent father. Unusually close and notably protective of each other's interests, the boys embark on a destination-free road trip with the cryptic father after years of gazing at his image on a torn photograph. But as hopes for a caring parent metamorphose into fear of abuse, a family getaway becomes the background for self-discovery and the destruction of deeply rooted emotional investments. As it turns out, the missing spots in the two brothers’ pasts run deep, the distance between imagined fatherhood and the man in its symbolic center is breathtaking, and Andrei and Ivan's need for a newly articulated relationship with parental guidance is a source of impenetrable pain.
