The Woman, a childrens book writer is abducted from her bed in the middle of the night and imprisoned for writing subversive literature. She declares her books to be pure fantasies, but her inquisitor, The Man, sees the books as allegorical attacks on the State.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
A hidden gem, great idea, great performances, low budget but interesting set design, weird music, just two people in one room during the whole movie. The ending is open for interpretation but I expected something different so it didn't work for me and that's why I didn't give it 4 stars
Wonderful script and powerful acting by Rickman and Stowe. This film is an almost unknown gem. I certainly hope Radha Bharadwaj has the chance to prove her talent once again, after the troubled production of "Basil".
