Shown at the festivals in Toronto, Rotterdam and San Sebastian, Simon Jacquemet’s second feature is a fascinating and dark, occasionally surreal, quest for answers about religion, science and common sense. While working in a lab where animals are used for radical medical experiments, Ruth begins to wonder if she, too, is playing God and question her own religion. Her life starts derailing when her ex-boyfriend, who was accused of murder, suddenly reappears. Is it really him, or a ghost? How is a role-model family woman going to deal with this situation? Judith Hofmann was a Swiss award for Best Actress in this surreal compared by many with Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.
