The name “Rok” keeps coming up. Give him my regards, we hear from the phone while Matej is standing on the Eiffel Tower with his new girlfriend. Rok Biček seems to have become part of the family he followed with his camera for over a decade – which also explains Matej’s natural behaviour. In a way, he is the centre of this film which shows him leaving his original family and founding his own. It’s not easy for him in either. Matej was born into a family whose members, unlike him, are mentally and physically limited. The tone is rough and marked by misunderstandings. The special insurmountabilities cause pain.

In the new family he founds with his first girlfriend a man is present from the start who is to become Matej’s successor. The couple still produce offspring, though Matej starts to think about sterilisation early on. In his film Rok Biček alternates between footage that shows Matej as an adolescent and footage that shows him as a young adult and father. Some questions that are open at first are answered step by step, others never touched. The confidence of the narrative and its sense of situations make this film stand out.
