If you want to watch some Hollywood movie, don't waste your time by watching "The return". It's not the movie, it is THe Film. It's perfect in all aspects: the scrypt, music, camera, landscapes and especially actors' perfomance. Haley Joel Osment's acting in AI, 6th sense etc (though this guy is a good actor) can't be even COMPARED with Ivan dobronravov's and, particularly Vladimir Garin's perfomance in THE RETURN

I tend to agree with the first review: if you're into Hollywood formula movies, I daresay you will not have much interest in The Return. Not that mindless hollywood formula garbage movies dont have their place for cheap entertainment when you just dont feel like thinking, but The Return is not a movie; it is art. Call that a cliche? Not this time. A cliche is an overused word that after time loses its meaning and power. In this case, I recommend you brush the dust off of this overused term, and get ready to use it again, because The Return is *probably* the most beautiful piece of cinematic art i have ever seen. The Return is haunting in the way it slowly grips you and wont let you go. The images are so powerful and stunning sometimes, that to add words or music would be immoral, and the director knows it. The many ways that it resonates is mesmerizing to me (and also to my friends and family who watched it with me): the amazing depth of the plot and storyline and how it rings SO TRUE for every boy and his father; the choreography; the script; the acting; the music...etc etc.. All throughout there is an amazing eerie simplicity, a minimalism, that in and of itself speaks volumes about the whole entire theme. We watched it and just sat there for a long time. Then we watched it again, and sat for a long time again. Then we watched it again. You very well might be just as enchanted as I was with this amazing film. The director is surely worthy of any recognition the guy deserves. Five stars. If i could give more i would, honestly and gladly.
