The Forgiveness of Blood

The script by Marston and Murataj is a somewhat simplistic look at archaic tradition in Albania, namely the interpertation of the Kanun that still overrides socially the practise of law. Marston however as a director seems to be looking at this with a very westernized world view and never really gets under the skin of why this tradtion is still prevalent.

    By focusing on how this tradition effects two teenagers, cut off from their friends and schooling, the film misses an opportunity to say something truly revealing.
