Synopsis

Georgy, a truck driver, leaves his home town with a load of goods. He is forced to take a wrong turn on the motorway, and finds himself in a village in the middle of nowhere. Gradually he becomes drawn in to the town’s mad and violent atmosphere, losing his mental health and memory in the process. Unorthodox narrative and breathtaking cinematography characterize Loznitsa’s first feature, that was nominated for the Palme d’Or and the Golden Camera at Cannes.
