A war criminal secluded from everything shapes an association with his lone association with the outside world, his house keeper.
Ben Kingsley plays ‘The General’, a War Criminal in some implicit nation escaping the individuals who might indict him for his violations.
His solitary ordinary human contact is that of his ‘servant’ (Hera Hilmar) – an, at first, hesitant member in the relationship.
Kingsley has his influence with equivalent aloofness and stifled brutality – however no express subtleties are given of his ‘barbarities’ – you become immediately persuaded this is an animal fit for submitting them.
Hilmars’ depiction of an individual bound by condition is similarly irresolute. At first repelled by The General, a shaky association raises it’s head.
There’s almost no in the method for ‘activity’ during the whole film – this isn’t a film about activities, yet about the outcomes.
