In True (2018), five strangers meet in a doctor’s office. In a changing world, even an innocent joke is enough to trigger an avalanche.
True is a dark comedy set in a doctor’s office where people are waiting in line for their appointment. The cold atmosphere awakens their hidden fears and complexes. How was the idea for the film born?
In recent years our world has become more and more ideologically polarized. In most of the western world that has led to a situation where even a simple family gathering is not possible without political fights around the dinner table. True stems directly from that, it’s a little distilled model of our society – our vulnerabilities and what ticks us off. With a hint of humour just as absurd as our lives.
