Political and gloomy

This movie played at the International Film Festival in Berlin this
year and it was in the official program/selection! A drama about a
family living in a very disturbing time and regime. But don't expect
the movie to give you some easy answers or an easy plot to follow. This
is a difficult film, but that's the way they should be (with a theme
like that).

Of course you could argue, that the ending isn't the one you would
imagine, but hopefully the movie has gotten to you until this point, so
that you can identify with the persons at some basic level. I liked it
and I think it has some very interesting questions (that again won't be
answered in the movie). Not an easy movie then, but if that's your cup
of tea, you will be very pleased here
