Product Description

At the turn of the last century, two brothers fall in love with the same woman. When she chooses the younger of the two, the embittered older brother travels to Europe where he becomes a reuthless mercenary, but the revolution soon takes a personal twist

Amazon.com

Mortality and graphic slaughter are central to Macedonian director Milcho Manchevski's first film since 1994's Before the Rain. In modern New York a young man, Edge (Adrian Lester), breaks into an apartment inhabited by old lady Angela (Rosemary Murphy), who then tells him a story at gunpoint. In Angela's surreally symbolic tale, set around 1905, there are two feuding brothers: gunfighter Luke (David Wenham) becomes a bounty hunter in Macedonia; Bible-quoting, vengeance-seeking Elijah (Joseph Fiennes) follows, and hell goes with him. Dust is part contemporary drama, part spaghetti Western homage--with the Ottoman Empire forces standing in for the Mexican army--and all meditation on the nature of cinematic myth-making. The performances are variable, but a plethora of movie references, particularly to various Sergio Leone films, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and The Wild Bunch, combine in a stylish and provocative fable that bears comparison with The Usual Suspects and Sex and Lucia. It also echoes Ararat (2002), in which a production crew makes a film about the 1915-18 Turkish genocide of the Armenians. Taken at face value the plot stretches credibility, but as a reflection on the nature of storytelling, Dust is an ingenious concoction. --Gary S. Dalkin

DUST is your typical western set in rebellious, turn-of-the-last-century Macedonia, with the two western heroes portrayed by a British and an Australian actor; equally typical is the interwoven story of a modern day burglar falling in love with his nonagenarian victim while occasionally tearing her apartment apart in a search for hidden gold. Okay, maybe "love" is too strong a word. Let's call it a sympathetic bond.

As a story about storytelling DUST is much more successful than it is as either a period western or a modern crime thriller. I enjoyed its quirky, skitterish ways (with emphasis on the word "quirky.") Fans of spaghetti westerns should get a kick out of the over-the-top, exploding blood pellet fight scenes, with Turkish Nationals replacing Federales as the army that couldn't shoot straight.

It's like this...I originally bought this movie because I had seen David Wenham in LotR, thought he was very nice looking, and got this film hoping for further opportunities to stare into his limpid blue eyes and gaze at his pout. What actually happened was that I was sucked into this movie on its own merits, and ended up very impressed with it. Some reviews say that it is difficult to follow - in my own estimation I reckon that the first time you watch this you take in most of the functional bits of information (and maybe marvel at the nice shots), but you will feel confused/cheated by the numerous un-subtitled speech that is included in the dialogue. My suggestion, watch the movie again with the DVD subtitles turned on. Suddenly, all the foreign language dialogue is revealed to you and you will a: see a whole different layer to the film that the director clearly intended only to reveal to people who were curious enough to translate all the languages being spoken, b: suddenly understand a couple of things you might not have done and c: appreciate your first viewing and the general confusion of the 'hero' in the midst of all this dialogue that he didn't understand.
That doesn't mean you should watch it the first time around with subtitles. Please don't. I suspect that will spoil everything.
Summary: Very clever. Much respect to the director. A good film to watch if you like films that challenge you a bit.

Dust is a dynamic mixture of love & hate, attack & defense, power & helplessness, reality & fantasy, lust & rejection, expectations & cruel reality, belief & skepticism, boiled all together in a furnace up in the Macedonian highlands, powered by unimaginable greed for gold and power. It is an adventure which will take you back in time, when people could loose everything in a split second, and then back in present, just enough to help you re-evaluate what you have just seen with today's sense and criteria... Real artistic refreshment from the all-present commercial & worthless Hollywood plastic. Five thumbs up for this excellent movie from Milcho Manchevski!

This is not a film that will appeal to everyone. It is long and complicated with several plots going on at once centered around a central story. Nice imagery, beautiful settings and an interesting story all around. The dialogue is very well done, geniune, witty, and well thought out. The two plots (one which takes place in our present and one that takes place in the 1900's)relate well to each other. The main charaters in both plots are well aligned as the grow togther over the course of the movie. This is a complicated feat for any movie to pull off but the director did it flawlessly, even merging the two characters into the same plot at the end. Brilliant work of art and film making.

Viewed this film via Amazon Rentals. Although I appreciate a good western, I did not particularly care for the style of the way it was presented. The jumping around from one scenario to another was annoying. That's just my opinion.

This movie had great action, but at times a little confusing. I liked the two story's intermingled in this movie and the ending was a really a good one. It was heartfelt at times and like I said great action. We did watch it twice to really get the confusing parts sorted out. All in all a good purchase

If I say my favorite character in The Lord of the Rings is Faramir, the answer I receive isn't "Oh! I love him, too!" Or "I can't believe they changed him from the book!" No it's usually, "Who?" If Faramir is so under appreciated, what does that say for his actor? Beloved Australian actor David Wenham is so little known in the US, I've had to search long and hard online for Region 1 DVDs then wait weeks for them to arrive.

Such was the case with Dust. The 2001 western also starring Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love) was only $6 on Overstock. Cheap and I've always loved westerns! Besides, it looked good-and more importantly-was a Region 1 release. Three weeks later, when at last the DVD was out of the mailer and into my laptop, my first shock was that it wasn't a tale of the Australian west. This is the American west, yet it takes place is contemporary New York City. Stay with me!

We open with Edge (Adrian Lester) a down on his luck hood who's breaking into someone's apartment. The crone inside (Rosemary Murphy) however is much more than Edge bargained for. The feisty old woman holds Edge at gunpoint and tells him a story. If Edge wants her wealth and hidden gold-he is going to listen to Angela's tale of the old west. When cowboy brothers Luke (David Wenham) and Elijah (Joseph Fiennes) both fall for Lilith (Anne Brochet) trouble brews. Seeking thrill and adventure, Luke travels to Turkey and becomes a mercenary in the Ottoman War-ever trying to escape gospel sprouting Elijah.

Both storylines presented by director Milcho Manchevski (Before The Rain) seem simple and overplayed at face value. Young black guy and white old woman bond over feuding cowboy brother love story. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
