American director Joshua Marston broke out in 2004 with his jolting, Oscar(R)-nominated "Maria Full of Grace", about a young Colombian woman working as a drug mule. In his remarkable follow-up, "The Forgiveness of Blood", he turns his camera on another corner of the world: contemporary northern Albania, a place still troubled by the ancient custom of interfamilial blood feuds. From this reality, Marston sculpts a fictional narrative about a teenage brother and sister physically and emotionally trapped in a cycle of violence, a result of their father's entanglement with a rival clan over a piece of land. "The Forgiveness of Blood" is a tense and perceptive depiction of a place where tradition and progress have an uneasy coexistence, as well as a dynamic coming-of-age drama.
