Fishing with (and for) Dad

THE RETURN, a Russian film, is an interesting--though flat--story of two young brothers whose father returns, unannounced, after a 12-year absence. Mini-bonding begins, with very little knowledge on the part of the boys (or us viewers) about who Dad is and where he's been for more than a decade. Some critics have found depth and metaphor here. For me, this was just a (bit too) simple story, filmed quietly and with beauty, which offered interest and some emotional heft throughout, but left me relatively unaffected. The performances of the two boys are quite good; Dad remains a cipher, as was evidently intended. Your move.
