Human life,human pain
11 February 2001 | by (Lerdala Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a slow way of telling of a crisis in life. You get a chance to understand , to feel and to long for other human beings. Alain Tanner don´t tell us everything and the Mediterranean way of life is giving the place a part in the film.
