Dead Europe

Drama


 

A photographer transporting his father's ashes learns of something sinister from his family's past.

Despite compelling performances and powerful depictions of Europe, it is hard to ignore some very lazy script development. The central conflict, which successfully sustains intrigue for most of the film, is resolved in the most underwhelming way; a character is literally introduced to provide all the answers. How this character knows everything is never addressed and the central character's response is even more ridiculous. You just found out some of your relatives committed atrocities, any questions? Apparently not.
