Return, The (2003)

It won the Venice Lion award

I have just seen this movie, and must admit it started off really well, with a rather good speedos scene, so I kept on watching  Roll Eyes

even though I had to read the sub titles, it was a pretty powerful movie, with a tragic ending.

and even more tragic when you come to think that one of the leading stars (Vladimir Garin) actually died in the same lake as the movie was made a few weeks after they had finished filming the movie.

Thanks for reminding me of this one!  I heard or read of it before but forgot to check it out.  It is now on my rental list. Smiley

I'm glad you got to see this, Teddy. The Return was one of my favorite films of last year   8)[ (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)
 
Now that it's out on video, I hope everyone gets the chance to see it soon.

That is a wonderful film. I'm glad I got a chance to finally see it recently (after missing it at the film festival last year). Beautiful story, with a very subtle symbolic meaning, excellent actors, and georgeous cinematography. Very highly recommended.
