A family of three seem to lead a normal, boring, routine life. The only interruptions they face are the collisions with mundane problems. We see sparing conversations followed by the patterns of objects’ silhouettes. The only thing that slightly changes is their place. Eventually, from the orderly facade of routine rise tension and anxiety. The viewer gets a hunch that the calm scenes on the screen serve as cynical deception. The anthropologist of violence Michael Haneke begins his “Glaciation Trilogy” with “The Seventh Continent”. The trilogy has become a very detailed study on estrangement in nowadays society and its consequences.
