“The Return” tells the story of two boys whose father suddenly returns after 12 years. He takes his two sons on a trip, destination and reason unknown. The father has a hard time choosing between being stern and fatherly, the sons start to doubt the man’s intentions. “The Return” is a very minimalistic film. It has a slow pace, steady camera work and little conversation and the viewer is supposed to fill in the blanks. Everyday situations come with a few surprises and wonder about certain events. A nice film if you want to see something tranquil some time.
