This film tells the stories of a pedicurist, a bird lover, an elderly woman in an old age home, a group of students going for a day trip, a married couple who disliked Germany, a policeman who has a thing for fur, a teacher and a documentary filmmaker. Their lives are very varied but connected in some ways to each other. However, the biggest connection of all is the tragedy of reality. Every character in the film is flawed, and most of them end up in varying degrees of tragedy. It is a captivating film that makes me reflect on life, and appreciate the fact that reality is harsh and unwelcoming. Good things do not necessarily happen to good people is the prominent message.
Despite the depressing content, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this emotionally challenging film.
