At family celebrations the conversation can go on for hours without anyone saying anything important. The party atmosphere in this case appears to be made up of a series of standard expressions and stock phrases, namely small-talk waffle that replaces any kind of sincere human interaction. Everyone sitting round the table seems to be following a script, and any deviation is unacceptable. But this is what the heroine of this graduation film is trying to accomplish and, in doing so, she may find the courage to bring a family secret into the open. A black-humoured drama about the important things that life’s banalities prevent us from ever saying. KVIFF
