As the note on the cover says, it is an "ambient film". And for some people this phrase says it all.
The movie presents itself as a set of scenes with no connection between them. The camera is static, like the eye of a meditative observer. Some events happen in front of it. If your mind is calm enough to let you follow these events, it will be just blown.
See, the scenes look at first like something trivial and ordinary, but as you watch them and you think about them, you start to feel like there should be some hidden meaning. What are these people doing? What just happened? What. The. Hell. Was. That?! But every time you think you finally got an idea, you realize that it's a total miss, as it explains nothing.
You notice a dramatic shift of your perception. You get this weird feeling as if the events are being orchestrated by some powerful force, yet you have not a feeble clue as to what it's plan might be. All you can do is pay attention and behold the weirdness of it all.
There's no final meaning that will permanently close the case. There's no judgement imposed by the author. There is only a pure enigmatic beauty that will haunt you for as long as you will be able to remember this movie.
Truly, a masterpiece, especially in this specific area.
