Sasha (Sascha Kekez) and his family return from Montenegro (where they’re originally from) to Germany (where they’ve been living for most of Sasha’s life). Sasha is looking forward to coming home, mostly because it means that he will see his piano teacher Gebhard (Tim Bergmann) again. But when Gebhard tells him that he will move to Vienna for a job, Sasha’s world quickly collapses and he’s faced with a few difficult choices.
Sasha was definitely my favorite film of the Identities festival. It’s funny, intelligent, engaging, has an incredibly charming cast and will just leave you grinning from ear to ear for the rest of the day, maybe even the week.
