CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER:   Life and where we all end up eventually.  Our lives are all the same with only minor variations.

PROS AND CONS:  I had sort of a love hate relationship with this film.  I loved the tone and style of it.  Voyeuristic in the European way and very introspective.  The downside is that it was slow and very subtle.  What ended up holding your interest more was the subtle imagery and not the dialog.

That said, this is a thinking person's film.  It shows in great details the interconnectedness of life  Random scenes that have no relevance at one point in the film, become totally meaningful 45 minutes later.

More of an extended dream sequence than a plotted narrative.  There is nothing extraordinaire that happens on the film.  Only the two lives that meet at random, experience their world in a slightly new fashion and then move on.  Everyday existence filmed in exquisite detail.
