alienation and boredom in the big city
25 July 2002 | by (Rio - Brazil) – See all my reviews

Walter Hugo Khouri was in the beginning influenced by Bergman (as you can notice in "O Estranho Encontro" and then by Antonioni, as in "Noite Vazia". This film has reminded me "L'Eclisse", but the city portrayed is São Paulo not Milan.
