For this 2015 drama from the Netherlands, writer-director Joost van Ginkel interweaves the stories of a Bosnian mother, the Serbian war criminal she's tracking, the Bulgarian model he kidnaps and casts in a sex show, the African immigrant who performs with her, the Swedish conductor who watches them at a tony brothel, and his son (Erik Adelöw in a brilliant debut), a 10-year-old pianist, who spies the Bosnian woman by chance. Music from the conductor's rehearsal accompanies a masterly montage that lends common pathos to unconnected acts around the city; ultimately the film's medley of interpersonal crises widens into a moving vista of modern Europe. Subtitled.
