Only for those who seek a bit further from a movie, not only entertainment
The movie is practically motionless and with no apparent story. However. the weight of the events is present.

The title "Ordinary people" represents perfectly the content of the movie. We sometimes wonder how it was possible to murder your neighbors, people who probably did nothing wrong to you; how it was possible to take part in a systematic cleansing without standing up against it, and just because somebody with little or no authority gave you orders to do it.

The story is very similar to Schoah - can anybody explain mass killings of Jews during the WWII? Ordinary people killing ordinary people. It will always remain a mystery, as suggested by the movie.
