The director’s father, a pianist who adores music, can’t make a success of his career. This man has a lot of questions about the world and God, and has a lot of fears about destiny and disease and dying. He use pills to live and talk, and he sees that success and happiness seem to need hypocrisy to come about.
So he doesn’t love a lot of people, and he thinks that depression and sadness don’t need any direct reason. He feels that the human needs more freedom to live.
