Lines oscillates between intimate portraits of seemingly random protagonists and a socially critical account of the impact of urban transformation on both personal and community life. The almost neo-realistically stylized footage shows the everyday hustle and bustle of contemporary Bratislava whose inhabitants, in addition to their own woes, have to cope with the constant grind of urban construction, collapsing traffic and rising housing prices. The peculiar visual compositions and neurotic orchestral music create an audio-visual poem about the reality of modern urban life, in which even painting lines on the road can be seen as a philosophical reflection.
