This foreign film is worth watching for a number of reasons. One, it is intelligently crafted around a very compelling story that covers an on-going land dispute between two families in rural Albania. As the plot thickens, the viewer sees a little piece of ancient culture enacted with tragic consequences on the modern landscape. Everywhere there are signs of a country finally emerging from the dark ages led by youthful exuberance only to be stopped dead in their tracks by a bizarre practice from the past. While this is not the Albania of the Hoxha years, one might wonder how much has really changed. While cellphones, cars, electricity, television, computers and ambitions abound, there is still this little left-over from an earlier time: a blood-feud has ensued because someone has taken the law into their own hands and killed their neighbour's son over the right to road access through their disputed property. Two, this production focuses on the troubling relationships between the two disputing parties in a way that resembles a modern version of "Romeo and Juliet". The ancient demand for a blood atonement as a condition of forgiveness will end up destroying the dreams and aspirations of the next generation. The victims in this story will inevitably become the avenging victimizers. Permanent house arrest is the ultimate death sentence for anyone caught in this social trap. Three, this film does justice to passions and emotions flowing out of this deepening rift: alienation, distrust, despair, hatred, weariness, and hope are palpably etched into the faces and actions of all the family members. And, finally, I liked this work for how it showcases rural Albania as a land abounding in natural beauty, strange customs, enduring conflicts, new hopes, and terrible realities. For those who like to watch films that effectively portray life with all its many cross-currents, this is one cinematic comedy you'll not want to miss.
