After RIMINI, Ulrich Seidl’s most recent work completes his diptych about two brothers who must face long repressed truths abroad. SPARTA tells the story of Ewald, in his mid-forties, who escapes an unhappy relationship and tries to make a fresh start in a poor region of Romania. A superb film about the inescapability of one’s own past and the pain of finding oneself.
