Eric’s (Guy Pearce) car gets stolen by a bunch of criminals on the run and he starts a pursuit through the desolate landscape of Australia.
“The Rover” is very slow, minimalistic and raw. The characters do not seem to care much about a lot and the viewer does not really get the story about the different people. The atmosphere reminds of the Coen films “Fargo” and “No Country For Old Men“, but then without the humour.
A film for winter nights.
