Our main character, Péter, is in his late thirties when he thinks he recognizes his father in a documentary on a mysterious accident. His father has deserted from Communist Hungary in the 70s, a criminal offense under that regime, and has not been heard of since. Péter travels to America and, after an eventful investigation, finds his father and his new family. The reunion brings plenty of experiences and teaches several lessons to both son and father. Also, as a consequence, the world is informed that the mute universe has spoken and that we are not alone.

Radu Muntean

One of the most outstanding directors of the new wave of Romanian cinema films here an intense moral drama that explores the affective shock between a mother and her adopted daughter.


Mikhaël Hers

Vincent Lacoste offers one of the best performances of his career with this emotional drama about mourning and France hit by violence, far from all sentimentality. An essential film.


Federico Veiroj

The most refined film of the Uruguayan director, endowed with a strange and hallucinated humor, capable of being misanthropic and at the same time humanist. A film about masculinities in crisis with a great authorial duel.
