Product Description

Alistar and Valerie have been planning a special trip to Germany for a very long time. When their son Ross stops by the house to send them off, happenstance turns into an impromptu family road trip of the most tortuous kind. Alistar berates Ross for all that he is not in life, while Valerie tries to keep the peace. It is soon discovered that Alistar's reason for the often comic, sometimes painful trip is to shed a guilt he's been carrying for years. Ultimately, the family learns they need each other more then they imagined.

Bonus features include a complementary short film, Director's Statement, and Bio, amongst other features.

(special thanks to Film Movement for providing me with a screener!)

Family is one of the few things in our lives we can't choose. You can reinvent yourself in many ways, but your family is something you're stuck with, for better or worse.

In the film Bomber, Ross (Shane Taylor), gets reminded of just how bad the "worse" part can be when he's stuck driving his elderly parents from England to a small town in Germany. Precisely why his father (Benjamin Whitrow), wants to go there is a mystery that's not revealed until fairly deep into the film.

Ross is a man who's clearly been hounded by his father his entire life. His dad is definitely one of those men who is never happy with anyone or anything. We never quite find out exactly why, but the trip to Germany offers at least something of an explanation. His mother (Eileen Nicholas), is a pleasant, long-suffering woman who clearly loves her husband and her son, and yet feels very alienated from both, which is no surprise given that neither treats her well.

This is a good movie, but not always an easy one to watch. Both Ross and his father are jerks, both to each other and to Ross' mother, throughout the film. Once Ross finds out why his dad is so keen to be in Germany, he calms down quite a bit. As for his father? He remains largely the same, though in the final scene we get a glimpse of hope for a better future.

== Short Subject ==

This month's short film is the German movie "Edgar". It's about an old, retired man whose wife died recently. He feels useless and wants to work. He goes to a department store looking for a job, and then accidentally leaves while holding an umbrella he didn't pay for.

"Bomber" does a great job of reminding you that sometimes the people you think you know the best, you don't really know at all. It takes a somewhat already dysfunctional family - distant father, frustrated mother, conflicted son - and throws them into the one situation that can take its toll on even the closest of families: a cross-country road trip. The film has all the usual road trip elements, from bickering drivers to tourist stops (courtesy of Mom's guidebook - gotta love when she takes a picture of son Ross pointing to a road sign. Whose mother hasn't made them do THAT on a family trip?)to trying to get directions in a country where nobody understands you. But it's the interaction between the family itself and the reason why they're on the trip in the first place (you have to see it to find out - no spoiler here)that really makes this film worth seeing. With just a small cast (three main characters, all brilliantly acted), you might think the story would drag but it doesn't. Driven by a good plot, some quirky situations, unexpected dialogue and excellent camera work (especially if you consider the movie's budget), it's a should-see. Watch it with your kids or your parents; you might be surprised at the reaction...

Format: DVD
A aging veteran wanting to return to the village he mistakenly bombed in WWII. A silly car accident forces a young 30 something son to drive his parents on a trip from England to Germany. Believable marital, family, generational and cultural complications. Suspenseful and humorous. 3-dimensional characters with excellent and subtle acting. Beautiful photography. The resolution that we need to express our emotions was simplistic and unsatisfying. While the use of the f-word was not gratuitous, it was overused for my taste.
