Movie Challenge Day 02

The last movie you watched

“Vozvrashchenie” , “The Return”. I saw this movie last thursday. I’ve written here before that lately I’m really into Russian litterature, cinema and culture. It’s quite obvious that the first name comes to mind is Andrei Tarkovsky when Russian cinema is in question. But Andrey Zvyagintsev has already made his name as Tarkovsky’s heir. You may have heard his name last year because his movie Leviathan had an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.

I don’t want to talk about the movie or not going to analyse it here. I love watching movies without knowing even a single thing about them. So no spoilers. Long story short, my thoughts on this amazing movie; It was extremely moving without being ordinary, extremely intense and at the same time so pure and simple. And it has the most impressive ending I’ve seen lately. After I read a few reviews and break downs, I was impressed more and I definitely will see it again.
