Rudina is the oldest daughter in an Albanian family. She attends high school and is an excellent student. Her brother Nik is the oldest son and he’s very popular in the same school. Their father earns his living by delivering bread in their community. He has been using a short cut through a neighbor’s land for a long time but the neighbor decides to close off this road. There is a conflict and the neighbor is killed, their father is involved along with their uncle. The police catch the uncle but their father escapes into hiding.
Seems a lot longer than 109 minutes and I could not finish this film. I expected a lot more from the director of Maria Full of Grace. There is a lot of talking and not much going on except Rudina doing the bread delivery. 2* (I didn’t like this movie)
109 min, Drama directed by Joshua Marston with Tristan Halilaj, Refet Abazi, Zana Hasaj, Erjon Mani, Luan Jaha, Cun Lajci, Veton Osmani.
