Andrei lives a secluded life with his aunt, studying and thinking about his now-deceased mother. His friend Tsenin is concerned, and tries to get Andrei to accompany him to social events…
Full of mystery and obsession, this haunting short film blends reality and dreams and lets the audience decide if his troubles are manifestations of guilt or something more supernatural.
Eerie hallucination/dream sequences, a great tracking shot, and nice use of deep focus, but otherwise stale and very stagey. Which probably is typical for silents of this era, but overall I didn't connect with this.
Stunning, haunting film.
