Storyline

Helen lives in London with her father and her kids. John, her husband, is an aid-worker in Eastern Europe. He has been gone many months. Helen is desperately anxious that he should come home. Taking the kids to school one morning, she is killed in a car accident. She remains caught in limbo, trapped between life and death. Many miles away, in war-torn Eastern Europe, John is unaware that his wife has died. As Helen herself is unaware that she is dead¿ Thus begins, a four-day Odyssey: Grandpa and the kids must come to terms with Helen's death; John must travel across a war-torn land as he tries to reach home; and Helen must stand helplessly observing her own existence as it comes back to haunt her - until at last she is reconciled with John, and thus released.

Sense and sensitivity
17 July 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Not an easy going movie that one can understand without experience of life. Just watching the "literal" movie seems indeed long, and lacking of action. But when interpreting in a deeper sense, one can see the story of a midlife crisis in a couple, where one cracks under all the household burden, and the other gets lost in a no man's land, and how this impacts their view on life, and their relationship. Being lost in all the ruins of the Balkan was a great image for that, and the struggle to get back is figurative for the way one fights to get reconnected to the people one loves. In this sense, the movie was very complex, poetic and sensitive, and filled my head for days.
