Storyline

Trapped, frustrated and isolated, for one disturbing, slow night these two main characters find that they have more in common than they think. Forced to rummage for research in London's City district for his new screenplay, here, we find human anguish mixed with quiet disbelief. This, a sobering experience of a subject with mixed emotions of her childhood past and future prospects spilling over the precipice of sanity. Haunted by her own personal bogeyman and hidden demons, as the screenwriter is forced to hide in the bedroom cupboard and slowly watch the unraveling of a woman lost, tormented and pained.

Quotes

Roman: [Talks to himself while practising his chat up line] Excuse me, this is going to sound strange, but, I'm not really not who I make myself out to be. I'm actually a screenwriter doing some research for my new screenplay, you wouldn't happen to be a shallow corporate bitch would you?

The individual or the type?
6 March 2001 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Strongly and admittedly influenced by Polanski, the writer-- in this film featuring the writer of a film featuring the writer of a film-- enters an abject little world fraught with the possibility of violent confrontation at any moment. He is following a wise-sounding credo that tells him that by deeply portraying the individual he will reveal the type (but try to portray the type and you will reveal nothing). Does he succeed? Or does the credo, by which he hopes to portray the type, lead him ironically to a revelation of the individual?
