Before the Rain Reviews:

A poignant tragedy about hatred, war, love and taking sides.Time is not linear in the movie, but the director blatantly says us that time is not a circle, so what is? The storyline is, and perhaps fight is.The storyline is said in three parts, with highly ironic titles: Words, Faces, and Pictures. Every storyline has meticulously planned, but highly disturbing parallels. The story-telling of the film requires diligent planning, down to each single detail, exceptional creativity, and extraordinary persistence. Perhaps that's why the director Milcho Manchevski was fired by both commercial producers Warner Brothers and 20th Century Fox for "creative differences"Before the Rain talks about hate, and how the power of hate can rise above love. It talks about taking sides, the central hero in every section tries not to take sides, but circumstances often prove such efforts futile. As with Kiril and Aleksander.In the film, all happenings happened before the rain, this sense of urgency, this pretty sadness, and this inevitable tragedy. Before the Rain is my all time favorite movie.


The very structure of this movie perfectly describes its philosophy - a never ending circle. And it's the structure that makes this movie work so powerfully. From the shattering opening section, to the startling second part, to the third storyline that brings it all together, this is a nice film. It's been overlooked for some reason, mentioned rarely in movie magazines and in greatest of the decade lists. But it's a phenomenal work, one that needs to be seen.


This film is absolute perfection. I can't trust it took me 10 years to bump into it by accident. I was surprised to see it was made in 1994 when the whole time I watched it as a reflection rather than prophecy of the civil fight that followed. The fluency of picture, music, and the storyline is excellent as viewer is taken from dramatic landscapes and slow paced life of orthodox priests to quick paced London roads and offices. Parallel stories in London fasten the pace even more. The film shows we are all connected not only in time (past and future) but zone (geography) as well. Fight and suffering in one part of the globe affect lives of folks in quaint London restaurant. The circle of human tragedy connects almost each hero in the movie. But circle is imperfect. If the circle were excellent the tragedy would stop when circle completes. Alas, the tragedy spirals in time and space. Acting is very real. Time is not wasted overbuilding any character. The method soundtrack blends with the film is pure art. Thank you for this film Mr. Manchovski. As strong as the film is, it's unfortunate it didn't support prevent the civil fight in Macedonia. When hate wins, innocence looses.
