The probably not too distant future: Doomsday has come and gone, erradicating almost all of humankind, with even those who have survived being on the brink of being infected by ... whatever folks have died from. Thanks to the foresight of their father (Andrew Bering) though, Jenny (Jessica Rothe) and her younger sisters Sarah (Anne Winters) and Danika (Chloe Beth Jones) have survived the ordeal in a bunker, even if dad had to sacrifice himself in the process. Now the three girls survive in their far-out home in the desert on a day-to-day basis, but everything's not ok, Jenny, the oldest of the trio, is just worried sick over everything and perfectly aware that she has none of the answers her sisters expect from her, while Sarah has become a distrusting, trigger-happy wild girl who'd like to shoot anyone (as few as there are) who stop by - and usually does - while Danika has fallen in a catatonic state and shows first symptoms of whatever-it-was that killed humankind, giving her sisters a very uneasy feeling. And then Ryan (Michael Nardelli) arrives ...

Ryan's a drifter stopping by the home of the three girls rather by chance, and when Sarah shoots him in the leg for ... nothing in particular, Jenny feels it her responsibility to at least nurse him back to health and then send him on his way - but she also kind of falls in love with the guy. Well, everything could be sooo beautiful - until Ryan invites his relatives, led by uncle Charlie (Cokey Falkow), who've been lying in waiting, over to join the party, and get their hands on Jenny's food and maybe more ...

 

As far as post-apocalypse, dystopian thrillers go, The Tribe most certainly comes from the (usually neglected) thinking man's corner of the genre, telling an existential parable rather than a formulaic action piece - and the film really pulls it off, too, as it doesn't hammer its message home with a sledgehammer but finds its story's subtleties that ultimately make the audience come to their own conclusions about right and wrong and (mostly) everything in between, which is only augmented by the ensemble cast, none of which play goodies or baddies but just characters thrown into desparate situations. And on a directorial level, the film combines post apocalyptic sci-fi with latter day Western imagery, and perfectly combines its long, rather quiet stretches with its (necessary) outbursts of violence while keeping up its tension and suspense throughout.

Totally worth a watch!
