Die Fremde – When we leave


Last morning, after voting for the winner of our special mention, we watched the movie When we leave for the Lux Prize competition, and I have to say that it was one of the best movies I saw in Venice Days. This is not a new theme, but is still common, and despite of being a long movie, Feo Aladag really managed to keep the audience focused on the story. I loved the main actors, specially the kid, they make the movie seem real. The movie was so dramatic but still so good! I had a knot on my throat almost all the time. In the end I thought the kid was going to shoot himself with the gun, and I felt so relieved when he droped it, but then the last scenes were so brutal that I couldn't avoid crying. “When we leave we always have to leave something behind”, but I'm pretty sure that no one will forget this movie.
