‘It’s not a justification of the suicide and it’s not a mockery at all. That’s the way the world is – a story about the crisis in society, where people lost the sense of life. Afterwards, joyful Alan appears, he is only 8, but he is able to make the sadness vanish, so that people become interested in their lives again. It is a modern tale, so to say, reflection of the modern society development. I like it immensely’ – shares the director.
