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?

impossible to categorize; moving, brilliant
26 March 2001 | by (new york, n.y.) – See all my reviews

happened on this film by accident, and was drawn in totally, though at first I had no idea what it was about. think of it as a voyeurism of a lonely "professional" woman's soul. Moving, unforgettable.see it.
