I was a bit
"We all talk pig Latin" she says... I'm afraid to miss half of the film with my bad English and my subtitles...

That kind of mystery-for-the-sake-of-mystery bothers me sometimes (yes, Lost is a good example) but not in this case. We are being put in the position of the boys, we don't know where the father has been, he just re-appears in their life.

I think their not knowing where he's been is part of the key to their relationship with the father - would the same conflict be there on this trip if he wasn't such a mystery to them?

Yes, I agree, Lost is different, it really got "lost" as it progressed... but here the mystery didn't bother me at all, I think it was quite fitting within the overall atmosphere of this excellent film. 9/10

Je n'écris plus qu'en français. Le nonsense n'est pas interchangeable dans son intraductibilité. Tout le monde pourra donc s'en réjouir en échappant à ma prose misérable.

Tout ça est à foutre royalement à la poubelle depuis deux ans (ce n'est certainement pas à moi de les sortir).

Understandable, I kinda feel the same way. Hard enough writing reviews in my 1st language.

Merci Beaucop.
