I saw this maybe 5 years ago and something today reminded me of it.

A view from a window no less.

There is something haunting about this minimal film. The elliptical dialogue serves the loneliness of the characters well and smartly, the director has left the actors with room to imbue their actions with uncertainty and truth, rather than signposting any obvious reactions.

I wonder if Maire is still making films and hope that she is. We could certainly do with a good new feature from Australia after the bland effort of somersault.

Well done.
