Storyline

Robert, a 91-year-old, set-in-his-ways pensioner, lives on a small allotment in Vienna. When his beloved dog dies during the night, he is determined, despite his failing body, to dig a hole on his property to put his dear friend to rest. He soon realizes he is incapable of the strenuous task, and begrudgingly enlists the services of Adib (Borhanulddin Hassan Zadeh), a migrant from Afghanistan. As the two dredge through prejudices to find common ground, Adib finds ways to pacify Robert, whose humanity briefly surfaces when he becomes concerned about a gaping, unattended wound on Adib's foot. When the situation suddenly becomes life-or-death, their day takes an unexpected turn - with tremendous, irreversible consequences.

two men
25 October 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Not comfortable but profound useful. Two men and the nuances of their relation. Bitter poetry, great craft, wise use of details and a powerful story accentued by performances. A story about loneliness, time, happiness and something who can be compassion or friendship form. Short, just admirable.
