    Rifle takes place in the countryside of Southern Brazil where Dione is one of the few left behind in a quiet rural town surrounded by plain fields and sheep ranches, as other landowners are making their visits with the goal of area development. Intially appearing as a slow narrative, the film develops the increasing tension of a genre film and after the film´s midpoint Rifle´s true nature is expected. The hardboiled tone is in a skillful balance under the structure of a Western with its divide between native and conqueror. Faced with landowners who try to force the ´convenience´ of civilization, Dione´s struggle ultimately leads to violence. With the uneasy coexistence of everyday lifestyle and limitlessly expanding capitalism, the film hints at an unseen violence behind the relationship between humans and machines. [JANG Byungwon]
