A man investigates his past through the places and people he once knew. On this journey he questions the origin of certain memories. A film that presents the idea of memory as a virus.

 

While Return of Suspicion ­pushes characters toward the furth­est reaches of their projected memory the viewer is presented with a slowly forming quasi-narrative event, which disintegrates as narrative lines are spasmodically crossing in a complete breakdown of image and sound.

Return of Suspicion aims to decompose the detective thriller while positioning itself somewhere between slow cinema and a formal experiment in sensory provocation. Completed with a zero-budget the film is also noted as part of a ‘domestic trilogy’ of feature films exclusively created with friends and members of the filmmaker’s immediate family, it is preceded by A Harbour Town (2013) and History of Water (2012). Film critic Peter Larkin writes: ”Kavanagh intricately weaves his version of chaos theory; barbed, racing and pounding to its bitter end.”
