Maren Ade's mesmerizing The Forest for the Trees, viewed last night in a state of slowly escalating discomfort. The film reads like a feature length adaptation of Schopenhauer's famous quote about life being an irrevocable 'error,' in which things "...begin badly, then grow worse with each passing day, until finally the worst of all happens."
I watched the second half through my fingers.
