Film details

Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2014, and based on real events, this psychological thriller is a portrait of an ordinary man driven to murder in defence of his family when a neighbourhood is overrun with thugs. With a masterfully restrained and non-sensationalist style, the film makes excellent use of both music and silence to build tension as we follow the humiliation of the protagonist step by step, and are confronted with our own fears in the process. A compelling tale of vigilante revenge.
