An Ordinary Man: Directed by Brad Silberling. With Ben Kingsley, Hera Hilmar, Peter Serafinowicz, Robert Blythe. A war criminal in hiding forms a relationship with his only connection to the outside world, his maid.

“Writer and director Brad Siberling offers a very strange essentially two character film that immerses the viewer in the terror – and humor – of isolation, demonstrating how the presence of a companion allows connection in a world that no longer makes sense. Filmed in Serbia the actual languages and change sin viewpoints (and accents) can be confusing at times, but this not the point of the film – simply an observation.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn the opening screen remarks we are informed that War Criminals are usually caught in time, except one, this one: The General. And apparently the area of location is Yugoslavia and we meet the General (Ben Kingsley) being escorted to yet another hiding place by his handler Miro (Peter Serafinowitz). When the General is dropped off at his current safe house he encounters Tanja (Hera Mimar), a maid, who provides the responses to the Generalu0026#39;s endless chatter. Tanja is his only connection with the outside world and the various walks and endangerments they face form the crux of this mysterious story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting by Ben Kingsley (sporting a confusing but consistent strange accent) is brilliant. A stylish, dense, and in many ways illuminating film about the effects of war on the individual.”
