On his second film, the director of Letter to a Child goes back to work with the most intimate and profound experiences of childhood. But now he focuses on the father-son relationship from a totally different perspective than in his first film. Completely distancing himself from any kind of documentary style, Vlado Skafar uses fiction and a kind of poetic, dreamy imagery that fuses together and chains together an entire autumnal day a kid with divorced parents spends with his dad. Throughout the film, we witness a father and a son as they play, have fun, get bored, become sad, fall exhausted in a park, talk to each other, and, especially, talk about everyday life including issues kids usually don’t discuss with their parents. The film reflects on this complex and indecipherable love bond, but also gives it a twist. In the end, the film unfolds current political and social issues in order to reflect on how they affect our most personal relationships.
