Synopsis

A young Latvian butcher, arrives in Brussels in the hope of getting a better salary in a meat factory. His experience turns short after being betrayed by a colleague. Alone in a country where he doesn’t belong, he quickly falls under the yoke of Andrzej, a Polish criminal.

Our take

The sophomore feature by Latvian director Juris Kursietis is a bracing and darkly funny account of Europe’s merciless migrant labor market. Evoking the humanist cinema of the Dardenne brothers, Oleg’s intimate, up-close cinematography and rich storytelling are truly transfixing.
