| Pathos and farce
The film inhabits the realm of tragicomedy, for violence and suffering are coupled with absurdity and dark humour. Yet it is precisely this ambivalence between light and dark that makes the story so engaging. The suspense is there to keep us wary of what might happen next and the characters are both laughable and endearing enough to make us engaged in their life. The cinematography is also incredibly beautiful; the vividness and contrast of colours make even the bleak, empty countryside, or the squalor of poverty beautiful on screen. Overall, the Empty Home has enough pathos, poignancy and sad absurdity to make it an interesting film.
