Synopsis

The difficult relationships between fathers and sons lies at the heart of this Russian drama. Young brothers Ivan and Andrey have grown used to life without their father, who has been absent from their lives for twelve years. Coming back to the home they share with their mother and grandmother one day, a strange but somehow familiar man stands before them - it's him, returned without explanation to take them on what he says will be a fishing trip. The events of that trip, and the consequences they will have, make The Return the haunting and powerful film it is.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
