While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists, which rival the surreal military experiences of his son..
Reviews: Roger Ebert: "[...] a searing and phenomenal examination of what writer Paul Auster called “The Music of Chance.” It is a formally gorgeous piece of work, the kind of film that exudes confidence in structure and tone, and it contains some of the most striking, memorable imagery of the year. Don’t miss this one".
New York Times: "[...] a movie that builds into a devastating indictment of a nation, shock by shock, brutal moment by brutal moment". ~ Manolha Darjis
