Film Fest Gent - Stories from the Chestnut Woods

"Mario, a carpenter with no work who obsesses over his saving is the hero of this sad elegy filmed in 35mm. As a result of his maniacal preoccupation with controlling his expenditure, he fails to see the source of capital growing ever more tangible before his eyes: his wife who is dying of old age. Meanwhile, on the other side of the forest lives Marta, a chestnut seller short on funds. (...) Stories from the Chestnut Woods tells of the accidental meeting beneath the chestnut trees of these two lost souls, who will help one another to heal the wounds which continue to pain them. (...) Gregor Božič's first feature is an exquisite visual poem on bereavement, which his characters must process in isolation from the rest of the world, in a forest between Italy and Yugoslavia." - Cineuropa
