This is a film about the 'students ball' in Horn, the little Austrian town Seidl grew up. The movie portraits the young débutantes as well as the local notables, all of them eagerly involved in maintaining the stiff and stifling ritual.
I've seen this movie 4 times, and each one of them it gets better.
The movie is just simple and great taken photographs connecting 2 stories that are actually disconnected but because of the fact that they travel in different directions.
But it is the story of 2 people who are evolving, growing and also failing, fearing, etc. And those 2 people are the perfect pretext to know about other people who are mostly demons ruined because of society.
If you are in the mood for one of the best stories told with minimum resources, but beautifully placed, used, and a profound message of humanity, this is the movie you are looking for.
