CGiii Comment

It's 40 minutes that could have - quite easily - been stretched out to feature length. There is so much content.

The handheld camera is a little distracting, use less and more wisely! Apart from that and the length...this is some serious filmmaking...with incredibly important [political] messages...pertaining to the European experiment!

The(ir) Blurb...

This love story, set against the backdrop of extreme right-wing protests, reminds us that queer love and politics are never too far apart. When Kinga falls for another woman, she sets off on a journey not only to soul-searching and self-reflection, but also to social-political awareness.
