This movie even starts as a tragedy. And continues the same way.
It starts with death by accident (in a car), followed by death (accidental again) in a supermarket, followed by a minor pregnant who's father kills the (wrong) person of who he thinks is responsible.
Her father goes to jail. The guy who truly got the minor pregnant - best friend of her father - flees with her to the Netherlands to abort their child. But sure it comes other ways ...
So it goes on & on - this movie happens to show, that we live in a doomed world where anybody just TRIES to be good or get something for themselves but never get it. We are all lost, this is a world of tragedy and horror - that is the feeling of the movie.
If you're open for such feelings (maybe you like Dostoevsky or Trakl or Bukowski) you'll find it very moving. Watch it! It is hard, is no popcorn-entertainment! But it makes sense. It does.
