In the sci-fi dystopia Life Guidance, the eponymous agency supports people in leading an optimal life - optimal in the sense of a turbo- capitalist society. When Alexander lets the wrong thing slip out one day, Life Guidance arrives on the scene immediately - and intervenes with increasing intensity in an only seemingly happy, single family unit. Along with the coach, who is faithful to the system, unease intrudes into Alexander's life. Unease about a society that has forgotten all humanity.
Life Guidance delivers a bleak insight into a dystopian future that has already begun. With its impressively gloomy visuals and the strong world building the movie features a surprisingly oppressive atmosphere. This, however, is not reflected in the plot's structure, its pacing, and the performances of the characters; combined, these aspects fail to build up tension and to help the viewer draw conclusions from the jumbled narrative.
