    Even if it lacks a stand-out turn it's still a grippingly authentic slice of life.

    What's lacking is a galvanizing performance comparable to that of the Oscar-nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno in "Maria Full of Grace." Still, The Forgiveness of Blood is a memorable portrait of a society and the demands it makes on those caught up in it.

    There's much to observe – for example, the thoroughly credible performances of the cast, most of them non-professionals.
