After one of the packages she regularly sends to her husband in prison is returned, a woman travels to the remote prison town to look for him. She gets caught in a bureaucratic quagmire of violence, inhumanity, and lethargy. The journey increasingly becomes a nightmare. »Loznitsa’s cinematic design is the opposite of the advice and insults that characterize the narrative from the beginning. The world glimpsed here could be easily condemned – but ›A Gentle Creature‹ prevents that« [SPIEGEL].

Length: 143min.
Language: Originial Language with german subtitles
