30 hand picked films. A new one every day
The same situation is played out in different cities (New York, Berlin and Japan): A lover has to choose whether to commit to a partner who is returning home.

Serviceable Hal Hartley. Something about it is a little dated, but I have a hard time putting my finger on what.
exploring the depths to which love as an event is unremarkable but wholly singular.
