Movie Summary

Director:
Milcho Manchevski
Released:
2001
Rating:
R
Dust was written and directed by Milcho Manchevski (known best for "Before the Rain", "Shadows" and "Mothers"). Dust starts off in the late 1800s when two brothers end up fighting over one woman. The woman chooses to marry Luke (David Wenham) who has killed in the past but then decides to become a soldier in Macedonia. He helps the Turks keep the Christians in order and he is only after the money. Luke is eventually injured and is taken in and cared for by a pregnant woman. She teaches him a valuable lesson to "kill for good, not for gold". A century later an elderly woman on her death bed tells the story of Luke to a young man named Edge (Adrian Lester). Edge is a thief who has actually broken into her home and decided to rob her in order to pay off his debt to bad cops, if he doesn't they promise to put him in jail. As Edge listens he puts together the connection between the elderly woman and Luke, but what is the connection and how do these stories intersect?moreless

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Dust is a bust, a big bad movie of the scope, ambition and bravura that could be made only by a talented filmmaker run amok.
