Conversations on Serious Topics is a film without exterior action, props, landscapes or special effects. Its main characters are children and teenagers aged from 8 to 16, with a special ability to describe the surrounding world. Intimate conversations with them reveal an image of the modern world – at times melancholic, at times comical, at times dramatic. Shot in a minimalist fashion, the film raises questions about loneliness, love, God, the world and human relations. “The world is people.” ”Don’t you believe in God? I can teach you how to start believing...”
