The plot: Oskar Schell remembers September 11, 2001, well - "the worst day" - when he lost his beloved father Thomas. They used to play a scavenger hunt game called Reconnaissance Expedition, which involved looking for clues throughout New York City. An old key found in a smashed vase sparks Oskar's imagination and the youngster becomes convinced that Thomas had left him a clue from beyond the grave. He embarks on an odyssey to learn the history of the key accompanied by the mute, elderly man, who rents a room in his grandmother's apartment.

what the others say


"Watching this film will prove shamelessly premeditated and excessive at times while tragic and heartfelt at others."

Time Out

"Less a film about communication, in the end, than one with its fingers in its ears."


"It's just too tempting to dismiss it as extremely long and incredibly disappointing. It's challenging, divisive and has moments of beauty but leaves you cold."
