Much has been said about the person Roman Polanski. On one hand he is a fantastic director and on the other hand, there always remains that dark chapter from his past. The page from 1977 that still haunts him. Some of his films are still classics (Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby and The Pianist). A new film by Polansk is mostly worthwhile seeing and so is Carnage.

Carnage is based on the play “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza who also wrote the screenplay together with Polanski. The story is about two couples who meet after a fight between their two sons. They try to convince each other that it is important that the two sons settle this as adults and learn to face the consequences of their actions. It soon becomes apparent that there are real differences in the education of both boys and that an easy solution sometimes seems very far.

Roman Polanski has delivered a beautiful small drama. The dialogues are very strong and the acting is top of the bill. This is also one of the main pillars the film is based upon. The arguments shift very subtle. Every minute we get to know the characters better through the arguments. They almost seem to reach a boiling point. The relationships of both parents are about to explode.
Polanski shows that with this film is not much need to make a good film to deliver.

Rating 3.5 out of 5
