  • Orig. Title: Obiteljska terapija

A car is engulfed in flames on the side of the road. Amid the chaos and fear, another car passes by-gleaming, untouched by the struggles unfolding beside it, carrying a family that seems perfect and not stopping to help. Who are these people who choose not to stop? “Family Therapy” revolves around a Slovenian ‘nouveau riche’ family living in a glass house, exuding detached superiority. This setting serves as a satirical backdrop for a humorous reimagining of the premise from Pasolini’s “Teorema”: a young stranger arrives at the family’s household, disrupting the delicate balance of the family’s dynamics and revealing a world of chaos and the family’s dysfunctional relationships hidden beneath the surface. Olivia’s smothering overprotectiveness towards her teenage daughter, Agata; Aleksander’s escapism fueled by dreams of family space travel; and the secret concealed beneath Agata’s wig. The film doesn’t just question the actions of those who don’t stop to help; it also probes the reasons behind their choices. Are they afraid of confronting their own vulnerabilities, or is it a learned indifference, a symptom of a broader societal ailment?
