Eloquent, introspective look into the void, 6 March 2008
Author: Carson Trent from France

Perhaps it might be more comfortable to remain spiritually barren, as a byproduct of consumerism or whatever, but once you allow yourself to be sucked into the void inside you get to discover that our souls are the sole power driving us in this world.

Valeria is drift-wood, she is hiding herself, but remains spiritually alive thru a journey into herself, where she discovers that there is nothing there reminiscent of happy-ending propaganda for her.

As the ending monologue unfolds, you will get this hint, like a drift thru an open door that maybe there is nothing out there besides the search itself. Or maybe everything is static around us, and we are merely spectators capable only of internal movement.

This movie will stay with me.
