Storyline

A hot summer evening in New York City: 3 people - a young drummer, a young and an old lady - accidentally meet in the cellar of an apartment house where they want to wash their clothes. Suddenly, the door of that cellar room closes and they find themselves trapped: the door can't be opened from inside. No gig for the drummer, no flight to San Francisco and to her fiancé for the young lady, no romantic dinner for the old one. So they start talking, trying to find out what kind of persons they are. I mean, they start talking, then pick on each other, then provoke each other, until the discussion resembles an inquisition. And then they change roles, and the game starts again.

Senseless
18 May 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I doubt that people (who are not intoxicated) who barely know each other would behave this erratic and impulsive. Yelling at each other one moment and then being nice to each other and then having sex.

The girl (unless she is neurotic) who is about to be married to another guy, decides to make love to the man in the basement after she finds out he his from the same neighborhood as her husband to be?!?Also there is an old woman in the room while they engage with each other, now since when would 2 strangers (well at least her future husband is from the same neighborhood as her lover ;) have sex with each other just like that. Now that really makes a whole lot of sense. And then the girl finds out that he lied, and is angry. So she just f***ed him because he was from the neighborhood of her future husband!?! I know I am repeating myself but I find this reasoning incredible.

It is supposed to be really hot outside, but it has been raining the whole day, rain usually lowers the temperature. Overall an unbelievably unrealistic movie. If you have nothing better to do and want to see people behave at their most irrational for very little reason, go and see it. Maybe I missed the whole point of this film, but it just didn't come across as being very convincing. Oh and the acting is not bad, comes across really annoying though.

THE ENDING, HOWEVER, EXPLAINS EVERYTHING (so you might as well forget everything is just wrote). 5.5 to 6.0 is my rating, depending on what mood I am.
