Great movie and what a powerful ending.

Liked the morality message but the ambiguous ending was marginally acceptable. A better watch of the same premise is the Romanian 2013 film Child's Pose. Not sure where the beach scene location was with those gigantic dolosse or tetrapods but surely weird setting.

Didn't know it was English subtitles, not our thing

Two brothers have periodic dinners with their wives at a fancy restaurant where they seem to talk about the great food and restaurant environment, but one can sense a semi-vicious sibling rivalry and jealousy, etc. While they seem to be talking about banalities, they will soon become embroiled in a situation brought about by drugs, alcohol, youthful indiscretion, criminal behavior, violence, and death. While this film is based upon a famous Dutch novel (63 comments on this library website), this is the first comment on this very good Italian film based upon that novel).
