Set in an unsettlingly flaky near-future, Cristina Grosan’s Ordinary Failures premiered at the 79th Venice Film Festival, winning the ‘Best Director Under 40’ award. Taking the tropes of science-fiction and soap-drama, the movie sets its story within the individual tales of three different characters: a misfit teenager, an anxious mother and a recent widow.
The heart of the movie is nestled in these characters, who, despite having access to everything we expect in the future, live lives that feel totally wrong. Combining what we think about Tomorrow with present day ennui, Grosan’s Ordinary Failures offers us an imaginative and stylised story that is visually alluring and strangely kitsch, but its greatest strength lies in the people, who remain spectacularly real until the bitter end.
