Synopsis: not take it from the manual — there's absolutely wrong statement!

There is the two brothers. There is the story of two travelling (?). An adult male and a teenager. They catch "the journey", which to run away! And here it is the most interesting: from someone who flees.

Road, two in the car. Between them a STRANGE dialogue. Stop in the Motel that bit begins to clarify the history of these two. Memories of the boy. Again trip. Dreams boy. Home in the woods. Pseudo-hunting with shooting. Real shooting... And all sleep or memories of a boy who has experienced violence? Here is happened.

This is the debut of the Director in the full meter, which continues, if not say deploys and complementary previous work in short film in the same name (in original language) same the movie, however, when the localizers have translated as "Two for the road" 7 years ago.

Debut, on my opinion, more than successful. Here all is well: the story, the parable means is understood only in the end not all, camera work — meditative piece, consistent. And one-piece installation of paintings that would not be surprising, if you know what Director — is a professional editor of a dozen movies.

Those who did not understand the meaning, I want to say (without spoilers!, for without looking, it will be impossible to understand): the brain of a child, survivors of violence and not able to endure this horror in virtue of their childhood innocence blocks the "unwanted" memories, building barriers in the form of false memories, "comes up with" fictional characters designed the same the brain to protect someone himself helpless before the same violence against him.

The ending is logical. If you seen my review a strange, STRANGE view! The film is good!

Mesmerizing movie, veiled, and the same time, lying surfaces for those who somehow can look deeper into the dark side of his soul... of someone's soul. Fear, hatred, revenge, lust — so many vices, and love — one of them. Childish innocence and adult recklessness — references to this film. Criminal lovers or just brothers. Faulty connection or a strong male friendship. More questions than answers. But only those who says... but we remember surfaces...

The film — dark atmospheric, slow, slow, holding in suspense. In the plot is a boy — Sam, who has survived a series of traumatic events. With his older brother, he tries to escape from reality problems, to put it simply — the brothers set off in running.

At first glance, the older brother protects the younger, which resembles a crumpled wad of paper, so it looks lost. Child haunted by what he saw, and words of reassurance from the adult nick is not help.

In the course of the narrative the spectator's mind go awry, it becomes unclear who who protects, afraid of who who is brother, who is a lover. The conclusion regarding this everyone should do it myself.

But still, between the main characters is seen sexual tension. And it wasn't fulfilled. Older guy, seems to like younger so that ready to kill for him, just not can afford to make him in physically restraining, limiting views and fantasies of staying to Sam to those who gave him refuge from his father, who was raised on the boy's hand. The Junior hero poprostu not understand what he wants what I want him. Does it nick or hate? Afraid or grateful? Would like he's staying with him in the forest?

In General and overall, The Strange Ones — psychological trailer from those leave behind more questions than answers, forcing yourself to come to denominator regarding what you saw.
