A curious look at a spark that reignites sexual excitement
19 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A couple live a grey, rather dull life in their flat; emotion and passion has long since gone from their relationship. However a chance voyeuristic encounter with the neighbours in the flat opposite sparks both their curiosity and, while looking after their neighbours flat while they are on holiday, the husband cannot help but fixate over the rooms opposite and soon they find themselves with an unspoken desire that exists outside of their relationship.

The plot of this film sees a grey and lifeless couple finding their sexual tensions revived when they witness some curious and sensual activity in the flat opposite. Neither talk to the other about it but their edginess gives it away and it seems to bring back their sensuality. Of course this isn't a total cure to their relationship and we still see their distance and cold history playing a part in their relationship. The film develops this well and the direction is clever; in an obvious move perhaps, the couples flat is cold and sterile while the neighbours is colourful and full of warm, deep colours – looking much more inviting for it. However the direction is also clever in terms of the shots – the ones in the cold flat are static and simple whereas the other flat sees them moving slowly, lingering and matching the movement of the characters. It may not be the passionate story you want, or take it to a conclusion that is totally satisfying but what it does do it does well and it is worth seeing for that.

The two leads are good value and play well on their rediscovered intimate feelings while also maintaining the distance that time has taught them to have. They match the direction and perform well with quite little dialogue to work with. The end result is a small film that only has one focus and may not satisfy everyone but was interesting and engaging to me for what it did well.
