Aiman. Soon, Rahim learns of his true identity, and all hell breaks loose.
This film received a standing ovation when it was screened at the Cannes Film Festival. I could see why as I enjoyed it especially the acting.
Both the lead actors churned out a fantastic performance. The chemistry between them were superb.
The film brilliantly shows the turmoil that a hangman goes through even if he is licensed to kill these criminals. It will certainly spark a debate about the death penalty.
The only problem I had with this film is Aiman’s dilemma.
Though he might have mixed feelings about the man who hanged his father, why harbour these feelings against a man who is only doing his job?
I could understand if Aiman had directed those conflicted emotions towards the judge who sentenced his father to death as no man has the right to pass a death sentence on another human being.
This where the flaw of the script lies. Luckily, there is enough intensity in the film for you to enjoy it.
