I use to read FATHER as a classical drama: clash of gods, clash of two worlds, and clash of sexes. Today, I find the military aspect to be more important. Worlds are genetically opposed; the conflict is exhausting and unmerciful. Like in the Greek tragedies and sometimes like in Shakespeare’ s too, the war is being held over a child, over the property of influence. The essence is hidden deeper, under the gentle parental love and care. It is the battle for power in the simple or complex meaning of this notion.
(...) At the end the ring is filled with blood. The collateral damage - the child will continue living and will repeat the once experienced model, later in life.
... Although entire action takes place in a family circle, still these events can be seen also in our region, but, of course, with more tragic consequences.
