Throw Me in the River is a story of love and loss, regret, and repentance. A family whose patriarch is desperately trying to avoid making the same mistakes with his children he made with his own father (and again much later with his wife) struggles against turning into his father, and against repeating the trauma he endured as a young man. Broad brushstrokes make up the backdrops, little to no color paints the few expressions for each character, swapping them out quite jarringly but I never minded. And by the end, they were faces and expressions I’d come to understand.
