BALLAD OF THE HAPPY KIND
Moma and Simon lead their lives on the meta level. Conflicts are settled by role-playing; maintaining an ironic distance is second nature to them. They constantly try to outdo each other in their inauthenticity. But at some point, Mona is tired of this eternal “filter”. Why can’t they just honestly say what they feel for each other?
- Duration: 21 min.
