A heart-breaking story about an elderly couple confronting routine, patriarchal attitudes and the relentless process of dementia. Winner of the Grand Prix and FIPRESCI International Critics’ Award at the Golden Apricot in 2016. Dutch Premiere


Determined to move on with their life, violently interrupted by the war several years ago, an elderly couple returns to their restored home. We follow their everyday life through the four seasons. Every day she becomes more absent and lost. Instead of helping her, he acts brutishly, sometimes even cruelly, towards his fragile wife. However, the realization that something is seriously wrong with her will make him question his behaviour and values.

Een hartverscheurend verhaal over een ouder echtpaar dat routine, patriarchale houdingen en het proces van dementie onder ogen zien. Winnaar van de Grand Prix en de FIPRESCI International Critic’s Award bij de Golden Apricot in 2016.


Vastbesloten om verder te gaan met hun leven dat gewelddadig was onderbroken door de oorlog enkele jaren geleden, keert een ouder echtpaar terug naar hun gerestaureerde woning. We volgen hun dagelijkse leven gedurende de vier seizoenen. Elke dag raakt zij meer en meer afwezig en verloren. In plaats van haar te helpen, behandelt hij zijn kwetsbare vrouw bruut, soms zelfs wreed. Maar het besef dat er iets ernstigs met haar aan de hand is doet hem twijfelen aan zijn gedrag en waarden.
