Subsequent characters appear in a poorly-decorated room, intertwining but never colliding, all possessed by never-ending rituals.

Storyline

Against the backdrop of a confined and minimalist room, a plethora of activities takes place. Little by little, the small chamber is occupied by diverse characters whose looping and overlapping daily routine generates a perfectly choreographed ballet, stunningly arranged and orchestrated by the cosmic tango of life.

Incredible Dance of Life
5 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In this masterpiece of timing and cinematic movement kept me enthralled for the full period. One begins to focus on a single entity and soon another moves into the room. There is true choreography everywhere. The movements of the characters never clash, they move seamlessly, doing the same repetitive dance. It's impossible for a brief review to do this justice. I would urge everyone to see this at some point.
