Commendation of the Ecumenical Jury, Kyiv 2000

"Seaside, Dusk" is a realistically told story about lonley human beings searching for a way through life. The mere fact that the blind young man begins to tell a story changes his life and establishes a new realtionship to the woman from Rügen. The film is well acted, and the idea that story-telling may help human beings to establish relationships and to solve vital problems appeals to us.
