When a movie fascinates me, especially when its low key, unknown and has mixed reviews (mostly because people expect nicely folded endings) I tend to watch certain scenes few times to grasp the hidden meanings, objects placed discreetly, a smirk, a smile, twitch of an eye.

That movie is called "Partisan" on amazon prime.

There's great deal of mystery in the movie, such as the location it takes place, post war? atmosphere, apocalyptic air to it, people are in poverty but we don't know why, homes seemed abandoned in economically depressed neighborhoods and again, it doesn't explain why or how and that's the beauty of this movie which leaves us wondering about many things.

It's basically about a man who builds a commune sheltering women with kids who come from abusive relationships or widows with children and he builds a family atmosphere for them..for himself.. but how does he support them financially?
He raises these kids to become assassins.

It's a beautiful film, the cinemetagropher is amazing in this movie capturing the color, the angles and the emotions on their faces.  I kept thinking that i had seen the lead actor Vincent Kessel in some other movie, turns out he played the dance choreographer in the movie 'Black Swan' with natalie portman.

It's almost poetic seeing the peeled paint on the walls, broken china, a statue in the middle of their courtyard, clothes hung to dry, chickens in coops, makeshift classroom.
A very different film...nothing extraordinary happens..except for couple of kids who realize this is not what they want.
