Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    A film with a bare-bones story told with such potency that its occasional flights of heavy-handed symbolism are easily excused.
  2. It's all so visceral that it overwhelms the near-abstract story and smothers what passes for characters.
  3. 50
    It has some of the simplicity and starkness of classical tragedy, but what made me impatient was its fascination with the macho bloodlust of the two families.
  4. 40
    The appearance of circus performers in any film not by Fellini usually bodes ill, and it does so here.
