Um jeden Preis – At Any Price: Directed by Ramin Bahrani. With Dennis Quaid, Kim Dickens, Aaron B. Oduber, Jacob R. Oduber. A farming family’s business is threatened by an unexpected crisis, further testing the relationship between a father and his rebellious son.

“I nearly wept at the end of this movie, over all the acting talent gone totally to waste on this dumb little story. It is more than dumb; it doesnu0026#39;t make any sense. I think that one scene sums up the problems this film creates for itself and then fails to solve. One of the characters (it doesnu0026#39;t even matter which one) breaks into a store by shooting a handgun through the window. When the window conveniently falls into a billion pieces, the character leaps through the open space and steals some stuff. Then he and his pal and girlfriend roar off, tires squealing. The event is presaged by nothing and leads to nothing. One is left only with a sense of mystification that anyone (even a film director) would think that a logical way to commit a burglary would be to shoot out the front window of a store with a gun. The rest of film is like that. One silly contrivance piled on another to create a nonsensical melodrama.”
