The jury announced the motivation for the prize: “Time is essential to the characters in this multifaceted story, but it passes at different rates and depends on the interests of the various factions. The time of unrest, of social upheaval, is reflected in the cleverly chosen title, which is in itself a contradiction. It suggests the unrest in the society, but tells this in a very unexciting way and refrains from obvious conflicts. For its depiction of an original international atmosphere in a small place, for its questioning of our understanding of history, and for seeing watchmaking through a prism of history, the FIPRESCI award goes to Unrest“.
