In a Copenhagen hotel, disparate lives intersect through accident or fate: A stewardess desperate for intimacy. An immigrant obsessed with revenge. A hotel manager lost in despair. A wife abandoned by her husband. A receptionist with blood on his hands. People meet in the intimacy of hotel rooms, secrets are revealed and unexpected events merge into a dramatic tale of love and longing. Written by
I really enjoyed this film. The characters were individually drawn and the suspense was real. I particularly enjoyed Lourdes Faberes performance. She drifted in and out of scenes as the maid she was, in character and I couldn't keep my eyes off her. I felt that she held the story together and that the film was well written. I liked the individual viewpoint of the filmmakers. Got a little confused by one of the female characters. I couldn't figure out who she was married to. But other than that, I enjoyed the feeling of being a tourist in a mysterious hotel.
A well done independent film.
