I thought I was going to enjoy this much more, having very much enjoyed the same director's later, Cannibal Man, many years ago. I became slightly concerned during the credits when the camera repeatedly panned an outer building and it may have been my print, the dubbing or my lack of attention but I found this very slow and largely lacking in atmosphere. I'm assuming a low budget accounted for some of the darkness and repetitions for the characters are well formed and introduced well. We begin to get a good picture of a small community living in each others pockets and a smouldering sexuality between this one and that but as the main character begins to theorise her feeling that there has been a murder in the flat above, the fact that she is talking to her cat is not great. The ending is astonishing and if I had been more in touch with what was going on I would have enjoyed it all the more.
