The police interrogation of a deaf mute boy, next door to the boarding school he attends in Kiev, turns into a shocking experience in real time.
A couple live and work in Chernobyl. Every day has a fixed ritual that is simultaneously sad and hopeful. Beautifully shot, restrained and touching.
Impeccable slow cinema. Johan Leysen makes a great impression as a hermit who finds a half-naked young man in the forest and faces a moral dilemma. His intense and subdued acting and the pure, concise images provide a plethora of clues to fathom his hidden motives.
