Storyline

Three stories. We see, but little is explained. In "The Married Couple," a salesman pays a call on an old customer who is with his wife in the upstairs bedroom of their ill adult son. Another salesman may beat him to the punch, but not before disorienting changes. A maid scrubs the floor. "In the Penal Colony": a man arrives at a penal colony where an officer demonstrates a bizarre apparatus, one that punches a message into the skin of a prisoner strapped beneath it. Who will be punished? In "Fratricide," a man is murdered at night by someone he knows well. A woman grieves. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This film is very timely.
15 February 2003 | by (Padova, Italy) – See all my reviews

I also saw the film at the festival last year and remember how well done the cinematography was done. Especially in "In The Penal Colony" when we see the general at so many interesting angles. This is a thinking person's film. "The Fratricide" reminded me of the current east west confrontation evolving all over the world, with brother killing brother. In this way, this film is very timely and the writing of Kafka lives on. It made me think.
