A nurse traffics the ID cards of demented patients on the black market of identity theft. Driven by easy cash, and an addiction to morphine, she struggles to keep tabs on her emotional void, and a growing fear of punishment.

Acest film hard-boiled e o poveste despre o femeie care e îngrijitoare dar comite o crimă pentru a supraviețui, ispășind pentru păcatele sale în lumea atee. Sunt uluitor-impresionat de sentiment poetic al neființei înghețate care apare după ce au fost zădărnicite umanitate și dragoste. Contemporanul film burgar la apogeu.// 介護士として働く傍ら犯罪を犯し生存を図る女性が、神なき世界で贖罪を求める姿を描くハードボイルド。人間性も愛も根絶やしにされた先の、凍てついた虚無の詩情に息を呑む。現代ブルガリア映画の極致。
PC. Socialist realism a la mode, for artsy film festivals. Predictable, without a real camera's point of view - alternating between blurring and random (Godard would call it "immoral", to escape religious issues i call it dishonest) glances, like those of a van itself or of a dead man, with no purpose for a subjective camera. With one good travelling in the beginning and tripod at the end in the snow.
The first half of this is brilliant (I'd have given 4 or 5 stars) but somehow I lost interest, I think because it got more focused on the trial etc. rather than the human story.
I think I need to revisit it.
