What starts as an exceptionally human, voyeuristic drama steadily expands into an introspective reflection on family, fact, and colonialism. Günter, who was found abandoned in the woods as a child, is now a talented stage actor living a relatively normal life. He balances a tense rehearsal schedule, an extramarital affair with his director’s wife, and regular dinners with his adult daughter. One day a stranger approaches Günter on a pedestrian bridge and whispers a single, foreign word into his ear. Little does Günter know that in this word is the truth of his heritage, the truth of his daughter’s unique medical condition, and the answer to all of his questions about where he came from. The encounter leads Günter down a path of acceptance, right into the grasp of the people who have been manipulating his life from the start. From director Alex van Warmderdam—of past CIFF favorites “Borgman” (CIFF38) and “Schneider vs. Bax” (CIFF40)—NR. 10 is a volatile yet gripping film that will leave you with questions you would never have imagined yourself asking at the start. —J.H.
