  • Warning: Spoilers
    Lasting is about two Polish students who are on a working holiday in Spain. When the boy kills a man who is bullying him the pair return to Poland and have to deal with the emotional fallout of the killing. The film certainly challenges the viewer: at one stage it's easy to laugh at the murder scene, even though a man is being killed; and the big question, of course, is should one root for the fit, attractive boy even though he has committed the murder (or, at best, manslaughter) of a homely, out-of-shape man? The film is full of long silences, and the two major plot threads - will the boy's crime be discovered, and will the lovers' relationship survive - are left dangling at the end, but I'd watch it again.
