Directed by Boštjan Hladnik
This elegant and enigmatic love story centers on a brooding young painter and an older actress. Uncertain of their choices in life, each acutely aware of time slipping away, they verbally savage one another, between admitting (often only internally) their love for each other. A study of archetypes as much as characters, the penetrating drama masterfully weighs whether life’s plateaus are cause for disillusion or hope.
