  1. dionysus67's rating of the film The Return

    The resurrection of Russian cinema finds with the 'Return' its own return to a purely visual language, which does not simply revel in sheer visual excellence but rather instills wonder in each frame, making 'absence' a systematic narrative trope. Z delivers a purely 'Russian' film and in this fashion strikes universal chords about fatherhood and the atrophy of emotions. A multi-level masterpiece from a great auteur.

  2. VIRUS's rating of the film The Return

    One of the best films I have seen in last 2 decades. The psychological conflict of the children has been portrayed so powerfully. And the visuals are so strong & beautiful.

  3. ceknklsn's rating of the film The Return

    44/100 (Bu kadar da saçmalanmaz be abi. Alegori kasıcam diye bu denli abartılmaz be hocam....)

  6. Didonne's rating of the film The Return

    Il ne suffit pas d'être le père pour être père. La nature est du voyage avec de magnifiques paysages maritimes, des épaves, une mer tantôt calme, tantôt agitée, l'orage, la pluie une mouette échouée dans une dune. Mais l'amour filial est-il seulement un fait de nature ?

  7. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Return

  8. azoulay's rating of the film The Return

    Zvyagintsev propose le vide des relations humaines comme objet à observer, à en comprendre les ravages, et l'universalité du constat. Au coeur le plus intime d'une famille. Cela aurait pu s'appeler au nom de l'idée du père. C''est traité avec la même vibration esthétique (et dieu qu'il est fort) que s'il s'agissait de sentiments d'amour alors que seule l'indifférence avance... fort et troublant.

  9. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Return

  10. Gilles's rating of the film The Return

    Sobre, ce film évite surlignage, pathos et complaisance. S'il était resserré, il gagnerait en nervosité et perdrait du côté relation entre les trois protagonistes. Les acteurs ont été parfaitement choisis. Les deux enfants sont très touchants, beaux et justes. Il laisse des questions et des interrogations, cet non des réponses, ce qui est assez normal pour un film sur le thème père fils.

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film The Return

    Oeuvre limpide, d'une beauté formelle sur le thème des relations parents/enfants. www.cinefiches.com

  12. caddie's rating of the film The Return

  13. cinema_file's rating of the film The Return

    A father appears after a decade long absence, his two boys embody the mixed emotions of his return, one of suspicion / hostility, the other of desire / reconciliation. Zvyaginstev presents his spaces openly, frames divided, and characters off center. Mother nurtures fear, father pushes you towards it. The sons carry his burden, literally and figuratively. ultimately burying him with his reasons and secrets.

  14. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film The Return

  15. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Return

    A sharply shot and written coming of age tale about two brothers that go on a hellish holiday trip with their estranged father. It’s a Russian film so nothing good could come of this other than a beautiful disaster. It's worth noting that the eldest child actor drowned at the same location where the filming took place not long after.
