Tuning

Slovene director Igor Sterk's worthy venture into Bergman territory, a stylized contemplation on a disintegrating marriage, makes for heavy sledding, the couple's winsome blond daughters providing the only grace notes of their sterile bourgeois co-dependency. Each partner drifts into infidelity. The husband's surprise encounter with a high school sweetheart awakens long-dead emotions, which soon perish because he doesn't act on them. The wife, given to nightly sobbing jags, essays an affair with a poet via cell phone messaging. Ennui, silence, and stasis weigh heavily as the husband and wife drag their baggage around like dysfunctional tortoises. In Slovene with subtitles. 68 min.
