The laconic, self-possessed Meinhard stands apart patiently making friends with the locals despite the language barrier. But he too soon finds himself caught in the middle of the simmering resentments. Creating an air of exquisite tension, Grisebach’s quiet observational style shifts the focus from dialogue to body language, to subtly explore issues of trust, masculinity and cultural difference.
“Free of affectation and distinguished by a generosity and sincerity exceedingly rare in cinema, . . . spectacular.” Sight & Sound
