| The sometimes invisible complexity of life
Sometimes little things become snowballs. That is the premise of this movie. The main character is indeed a decent man trying to do the right thing, which proves to be difficult. We play in life different roles that are not easy to harmonize, each one in different scenarios with different rules, expectations and colors. Father, husband, employee, friend, citizen: these are the roles that the protagonist wants to reconcile.But those roles do not always add up. This is an unpretentious, well-photographed movie with such simple premise and it delivers. Acting is a little bit uneven but there are also strong performances and a realistic atmosphere.

Overall this film reminds us the fragility of our seemingly inertial and routine life driven by the complexity of the diverse roles that we simultaneously play, which leads us to a life full of shades of grey rather than simplistic tones of black and white.
