Vozvrashcheniye 2003 (The Return)

Just watched this Russian film with Rab And Ged. Bit of a weird one really. The film is beautifully shot in mainly dark colors with the only red in the whole film being the car. The director Andrei Zvyagintsev borrowed that trick from Spielberg's Schindler's List. The film certainly raises more questions than it answers, what was in the box?, what does the father do for a living? There are some interesting posts at imdb about the film being political or religious allegory. Sadly the actor who played the older boy drowned shortly after filming in the same lake the film was shot at.
