This is a small tight film with few characters and locations. It's the performances and script which make this film very watchable. It starts by raising a number of questions about who this father and son are and what they are doing. This is an intriguing and engaging start.
The relationship of the two main characters is very believable; full of pathos and love. This film touches on some core human emotions and takes the viewer on a journey and struggle of the main character who needs to reconcile with his past but also wants to form a deep connection with his son. The main character struggles with his identity as a father and how he can break the shackles of his own father relationship.
Overall a nice film which is touching, understated and overall satisfying.
