I saw this three years ago at a festival and I still recall it vividly. The film really lingers. Yes, it's about trust - and it's also about remembering and forgetting. The film really focusses on the dichotomy between "evidence" and what it represents. Evidence is seen to fall drastically short of the "truth" - which for Vlacil is something intangible but communicable by film.
