51st Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019


Fortnight 2008, Feature film, 1h40


25-year-old Lesha Shultes, a former athlete that had received a serious injury in a car accident, becomes a pickpocket. This is his only way of communicating with the outside world. He lives a lonely life with his sickly mother, steals, and occasionally visits his younger brother in the army. Love, friendship, and affection have no place in Shultes’ life. His only encounter with human feelings occurs when he gets a video from a young woman he robbed earlier. This contact with a stranger’s life and feelings leads Shultes to rash decisions.
