| Love is alive...
...Even in death. This movie is more than anything anyone can tell you about it. It is not a cop-action movie, not a sociological study, nor an emotional drama. What you will find yourself watching is what you want to really see. But what mostly comes through, however the director gets there, is the love lost between a father and a son. The father having never questioned his love for his son, the son never having thought about his love for his father. They come together after events in the son's life that could be any other hardship a man goes through in his life. This time it's prison.

So the premice is not that original... So the treatment is a bit artsy. But the emotions that flare up between the two men are stronger than the story line, and the acting is what makes it all seem so close to home. The fear of rejection that parents feel when they see their child become an adult, and the feelings of being controlled by their parents, that adults still feel because they haven't grown up yet.

A wonderful movie, powerful, simple in it's message but complex in it's meaning. I would pay anytime to watch it again!
