Weight of life sometimes is just not easy. So, it looks serious and might be worth of attention ...

Looks pretentious tbh, but maybe it's just the trailer, which is pretty "nichtssagend" as they say in German (without much content). The cinematography reminds me of Yorgos Lanthimos' early films, like Dogtooth. And do I see Rogowski in this? That guy's working nonstop, man (I'm not complaining)!
