Wintersreise (Winter’s Journey)

Synopsis

Walter is waiting at the last station of his journey through life. His family and friends all know what is best for him. But in the end they have to understand that his ending belongs only to him.


Review

We found this to be a very moving family drama, with a very powerful message, one that leaves an impression long after it has finished. Anchored by two very strong performances by the two young girls struggling to come to terms with their arranged marriages. Nice slow build, with powerful moments for each young girl as they take measures to ensure their freedom. Seems almost futile to try, but the spoon has an even bigger impact that what was initially thought. Great film from promising talent in front and behind the camera.
