A bit meandering and overlong but funny satire about the artistic community. It is a bit challenging as the director takes us on the worst couple of days of art museum director Christian's life. His world is rocked by a series of mistakes that underline the theme of the movie of how long can you watch inhumanity till your humanity kicks in. For Christian it takes quite a while to overcome his pretentiousness and egoism to act like a humane and honest person rather than pretending to be one. The standout scene of the ape-man performance art act during a donor's dinners is completely riveting and unnerving.

Pretentious load of mindless twaddle. The baby in the first 12 min. - more than enough, I assure you - was nice. A lot of man buns, too, which may be a sign just as the globalist buzz word, 'sustainability,' has come to signal totalitarian banality.

You will feel the running time, and the events are connected more so in theme than narrative, but this movie has a lot to say about the human condition and how we interact with others in modern society and it is worth hearing.
