    A film made up of short stylish vignettes of a disparate group of characters, linked from one scene to another sometimes by character, sometimes by location, but all following the themes of absurdity of life, the loneliness of unrequited love, dreams and fantasies explored and the feeling of disconnection from the world and each other. The prevailing gloom and the stark washed out cinematography and mostly static long shot camera work is tempered with some fantastic black humour; a particularly good comic moment involves the retelling of a dream of the pulling a tablecloth from beneath a fully laden family banquet which takes an absurdly tragic turn, also when a business man picks the wrong day to be rude to his barber. A unique film and well worth a watch. 8 years 8 months ago
