Storyline

It's night. Perhaps after a dream of an intruder crashing through a window, a woman who's sensitive to light has a telephone conversation with a friend. The woman has a plane ticket from Copenhagen to Buenos Aires at 6 that morning. She doesn't want to go. Her friend encourages her to make the trip. Later, she stands in a car park with her suitcase. Flying geese fill the screen. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Waiting for Whomever.......
27 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is one of those film that take great patience to even sit through (short as it is). There are some interesting images and little that I could figure out. I suppose the main theme involves a confrontation with light. The rest is hard to speak positively about. k
