BEST DIRECTOR / ENCOUNTERS BERLINALE 2021
A remarkable construction of a rigorous mise en scène serving the ambiguity of each character with grace, humour, subtlety, and ultimately embracing the complexity of human relationships.
 
FIPRESCI AWARD / ENCOUNTERS BERLINALE 2021
In very sharp and clear images, Ramon and Silvan Zürcher succeed as few do, in what is becoming increasingly important in the cinema of the 21st century: They create their own aesthetic and narrative universe. Full of lightness and seriousness at the same time, the directors establish a hyper-realistic world full of dark details that can always lead to an emotional outburst – a shiny and irritated surface in which the cracks of our time open up.
