Review:

On The Way HomeWith the global recession as a political context, On The  Way Home raises questions of morality in today’s punishing economic climate. Too proud to tell his family the extent of his financial woes, Alberto is forced to take on extra work, on the wrong side of the law. While maintaining the charade that his business is comfortably afloat he makes extra money running illegal packages.   

But before long things get complicated as Alberto’s home is invaded, his wife and young children taken hostage and he is forced to go on a dangerous mission on his own. Charged with bringing back a valuable shipment, he must complete the job in order to save his family. But along the way things don’t go to plan, as he becomes caught between different groups of dangerous criminals.

Against the backdrop of the roads and beautiful countryside of South-Western Italy, the film follows Alberto on his frantic journey home. With everything at stake he is forced to consider the unthinkable as he contrives a desperate solution to his impossible situation. Not afraid to pull its punches, this thriller provides relentless tension with a contemporary bite as well as a powerful emotional core.
