A teachers' world is turned upside down when her husband, a successful headmaster, is caught embezzling from their own school.

User Reviews

Wow, what did I just watch?
8 September 2017 | by mtfttxqnpaygSee all my reviews

Try to imagine Ingmar Bergman directing a movie thought out by Alain Resnais! Pretty hard, right? But not after watching this movie. Its digging that deep into the human condition, but also the science behind it. The movie succeeded in making a satisfying whole out of what seems to be opposites: empathy and verfremdung, fiction and facts, science and imagination, real life and theory.

A lot of food for thought here and glowing performances, solid direction and a mind-bending, intelligent screenplay.

Well done!
