The winner of the 1997 Academy Award® for Best Foreign Film is an epic father-son struggle set in Holland in the 1920s. When a despised town bailiff is discovered with a knife through his heart, a young lawyer who had just visited the victim becomes the main suspect.

Sure, "Character" defines its title as a character study, and it is a haunting one. The film also noted for its gripping visual style and tone. The twist in the end of the film is kindda the downpart for me, it's not really worth all those interesting plots. The ending also failed to define (or redefine) its character. Great acting from both main actors, but Betty Schuurman is the real show.
