The Reaper

THE REAPER begins with Ivo, a quiet laborer in an agro-industrial conglomerate, coming to the aid of a woman whose car has run out of gas on a dark, deserted road. Though he appears in the guise of a savior, the truth is that Ivo is anything but a hero: he did time in prison for raping a woman many years ago. These days, he is quiet and withdrawn, struggling with his demons and with the ugly past that his fellow villagers refuse to let him forget. The seemingly benign roadside meeting is just the beginning of Ivo's long night, which THE REAPER recounts in three seperate stories. (Dimitri Eipides, Toronto International Film Festival)
