A coolly elegant one-man police procedural slowly develops into a beguiling psychological mystery in this genre-bender that raises more questions than it answers. Troubled loner cop Dusan investigates the death of Ozim, a man who apparently jumped from a highway bridge. At the same time, he tries to sort out his relationship with his little daughter and litigious ex-wife.

Eventually Dusan discovers Ozim was a well respected though not widely known bisexual music critic and musician, who seemed to live a normal if somewhat secluded existence. This ordinary, somewhat anonymous life seems like an oasis of peace and normality to Dusan, whose behavior increasingly resembles that of the deceased person he is investigating, starting with prolonged stays in Ozim's apartment. As in the work of David Cronenberg, director Sterk here couples the psychology of his characters directly with their physicality, and a lot of Dusan's slow transformation into a dead man is suggested visually rather than through dialogue. Winner of nine Slovenian film awards, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
