The juryMotivation: “It is a beautifully fresh breath of pure cinema – a convincing and tightly-constructed movie quietly assesses the problems of modernity in a world where people are struggling to survive; an exploration of class struggle recalling classics like “Bicycle Thieves”. At its most essential, the film cries out with humanity, telling a universal story with dignity, tenderness and deep compassion. Poignant and heart-breaking, this is a wonderful gem of contemporary cinema.”
