Courage | Chicago Reader


83 minutes 2012

This dark fable by writer-director Greg Zglinski recalls the philosophical dramas of Krzysztof Kieslowski and Krzysztof Zanussi, raising complex moral questions but refusing to provide any answers. Two grown brothers—one college-educated, the other blue-collar—constantly lock horns over how to manage the family business; when they stumble upon a violent incident, they discover just how different they’ve become. This is consistently surprising, and in contrast to most suspense films, the plot twists tend to reveal character rather than incident. Yet its peripheral treatment of the men’s professional life pales in comparison to how Kieslowski and Zanussi often made their characters’ jobs intrinsic to their identity. In Polish with subtitles.
