Fully decided to sell this vast but desolate property, he is warned by the local cop that his grandfather was a local crime lord and his men will not let go of the land - and their smuggling business - without a fight.

"How to be reasonable without looking around oneself ?"
we know so little about what's going on and yet so much.
★★★½ review by timeryin on Letterboxd
interested story of Roman who returns to his village from the city in order to solve his estate issues. He faces the hard relations with the locals. The film is a modern western very well shot and well made.

★★★½ review by cinemagazine on Letterboxd
"Mirica mixt op stijlvolle wijze genres als thriller, drama, western en film noir en slaagt hier grotendeels goed in. Zijn personages zijn boeiend, de manier waarop hij hen in het verhaal plaatst is beslist onconventioneel. Drie mannen, drie verschillende achtergronden, motieven en toekomstplannen, dat kan niet anders dan escaleren. ‘Câini’ is continue mysterieus, met gewelddadige uitbarstingen die je door die voortdurend borrelende spanning wel aan voelt komen, maar die je toch weten te verrassen.
