In Detail

Elena (Greta Grineviciute) is a contemporary dancer, living her life freely bouncing from relationships and sexual encounters without a serious commitment. When she meets interpreter Dovyda (Kęstutis Cicėnas), someone who joins to interpret for a hearing-impaired group of teenagers she’s teaching, there’s an instant spark.

When he discloses that he is asexual, she is unsure how to respond. This peels back a layer of modern dating that is not often seen in film, and it is done so in a way that feels natural and poignant. It emphasises the vulnerability of its characters from a deft vision by Kavtaradze, ‘Slow’ is a subtle but impactful film. Moving and beautiful.
