Excellent short with enough angst to fill a feature length film. Good calling card for director Yann Chayia. Film at just 16 minutes offers quite a punch to the senses with its well told somewhat enigmatic story. Two leads are both quite interesting in a study of near non-verbal communication. Well worth searching out.
imagine this was romanian. everyone would swarm in, choking with emotion, struck by the lightning of sudden apprehension, building intricate psychologies behind the barren banality of the scanty dialogue. alas, it is just french, thus unforgivable. plus, it has some next-to-properly configurative music, which romanian new wave seldom has. still, imagine this was romanian.
