The Day

A superb dance film from Slovakia, based on a true story. The Day begins with a car crash, tracking the film’s two central characters for the next 24 hours. Emotionally and physically adrift, plagued by dissociative omens, prescience and strange encounters, our protagonists follow their own footprints through a labyrinth located somewhere between reality and illusion, life and death.
