Shot in Central African nation Chad, this melancholic drama from acclaimed director Mahamet Saleh Haloun sees ageing swimming champion Adam forced to give up his job as pool attendant at a swanky hotel after it gets taken over by new Chinese owners. The resentment and humiliation he feels is compounded by his own son Abdel replacing him. With the country in the midst of a civil war, Adam is pressured into making a decision that will seriously disrupt his family. This thought-provoking film subtly yet powerfully conveys not just family tension, but the stress of living in a war-torn nation.
This tense, coldly atmospheric Russian film tells of the strain between a father returned after twelve years and the sons he takes on a fishing trip.
