Film description

The film tells a dark and somehow primordial story about treason, loyalty and adolescence.We see it from the perspective of a ten-year-old boy who looks after his sick mother and visits his father in jail.The monotonous life of the main character is interrupted by a stranger arriving - the intruder destroys the previous order.The child is entangled in the reality of the adults, he is a kind of puer-senex, a child forced to behave like a mature man, and yet living in a world of fantasy in which nature is alive and conscious, in which things have powers and all actions are symbolic.The director says:I wanted to make a movie about the world of a child, where the surrounding reality and the child's fantasy are equally present. A world that is both mysterious and new.

The film leaves a lot unsaid and its plot is based on pure emotions.Much like in the original phase of cinema, words are unnecessary here and the tension is created by the image itself, by simple gestures, symbolic reactions. Everything is united in an atmosphere of anxiety and undefined terror.The cool, almost ascetic beauty of cinematography does not take us to a Magic Land.The grown-up world is dark and painful.
