Storyline

A young, female filmmaker looks through her camera for an object to film. She wants to film the private live of an ordinary person and starts following Guy. He is very irritated about this girl following him, always looking through her camera, never showing herself. She does not even say her name but follows him even home to his bedroom. He tries to get rid of her but she does not stop. After a while he gets used to the camera and the girl behind it and tries to get involved with her. First she protects herself with her camera but cannot keep the barrier up. When their feelings and Guy's actions become too confusing for them Guy disappears mysteriously. However, he comes back; with a camera. Written by Gerhard Windecker <g.wind@mbox300.swipnet.se>

Guy - about voyeurism and Vicent D'onfrio
15 July 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A fantastic comment on voyeurism and the media in modern times. A pioneer to the truman show this film echo's society's vicarious nature exemplified through the real life TV shows such as 'The real world' and big brother, but hints at the dangers of our own obsessions with others lives.

Vincent D'Onfrio is amazing as Guy, an initally reluctant victim of a female filmaker's camera who begins to enjoy her attention.....which provokes consequences on his own sanity.

A brilliant film.
