The Road: a movie review

Posted: December 30, 2011 in Movies, Natural Catastrophe

I would like to start my very first (real) blogpost with a movie that has deeply impressed me. Although most of the time the film is calmly told it grips your attention and doesn’t let got till the end.

The Road takes place in a dark, cold and depressing post apocalyptic america. What event has caused this catastrophe remains unknown. It tells the story of survival of a nameless father (Viggo Mortensen) and his son. After using up all their rations they are forced to leave their home and to make it in a cruel and merciless world. Apart from the well created scenario and it’s tense & hopeless atmosphere, the conversion from a regular guy to a merciless habitant of a post apocalyptic world is what makes this movie extraordinary.
Of course there are some more twists in the story plus some gruesome details, but I don’t want to spoil anything 🙂 Checkout the trailer to see more!
