Valeska Grisebach's slow-burning drama about a laconic man (Neumann) who is part of a group of German workers that arrive in a small Bulgarian village to construct a water plant. Tension begins to show between the workers and villagers as the language barrier and the legacy of WWII are keenly felt. A thought-provoking and sparse film of beauty.
