1h 38min | Drama | 14 February 2014 (Germany)
An 11-year-old Chechnyan refugee living in Vienna whose life is thrown into disarray when a friend of his deceased father materializes.
My first thought after watching this movie was that something can be said about the traditional “hero journey” movie structure, where the main protagonist has to overcome some outer or inner obstacle, and during the course of this struggle, grows or at least changes as a person. Which is exactly what “Macondo” is missing in my opinion. At the end, everyone’s pretty much the same, and nothing has really changed. Which made the movie seem regrettably meaningless to me.
