The Re­turn

SBS ONE, 12.25am, M ( 2003)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

A Rus­sian fa­ther ( Konstantin Lavro­nenko) re­turns home to visit his two sons ( Ivan Do­bron­ravov and Vladimir Garin), who he has not seen for 12 years, and takes them on a fish­ing trip. From a sparse plot, di­rec­tor An­drei Zvyag­int­sev cre­ates an air of im­mi­nent men­ace and in­trigue as the boys learn more about their mys­te­ri­ous, im­pos­ing fa­ther on their boat ride in the wilder­ness. Zvyag­int­sev won a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Fes­ti­val, and at­tracted a slew of other plau­dits world­wide for his haunt­ing, in­cred­i­bly pre­cise and un­for­get­tably pow­er­ful psy­cho­log­i­cal drama.
