The Road

A film-maker, so self-obsessed he has nightmares about film festival screenings going wrong, hears that his mother is ill, and takes the long drive to his remote native village, reappraising his life en route, but barely able to grasp or appreciate his wife's love for him. A road movie, then, with all the digressions and taciturn introspection you'd expect; there is, however, also a nice line in droll, deadpan, deprecatory humour. Patchy, but its quiet virtues reward patience.
