The Compensation (2001)

Sobre o filme

Soon after the funeral of their son who fell victim to malaria, Guneris and his wife find a precious stone. The husband views this as divine reward for the loss of the child. This “gift from the gods”, however, eventually attracts the attention of three violent robbers who take the stone and rape his wife. The tragedy engenders a thirst for vengeance in the couple. Both will make a pact that is to rule their lives. Now, 52 years later, the moment has come to finalize this agreement. One day after his wife’s funeral, Guneris goes to the police department and confesses to having assassinated all three thieves, a secret that brings with it much anguish and that could be told only after the death of he himself or of his wife. The Compensation broaches the misfortunes of life, the extreme level of cumplicity that may exist in a particular relationship, and the time the consequences of the decisions we make can last.
