A woman gets off a train by mistake when it stops at a siding in the middle of nowhere. The only person there is a peculiar man whose job is to switch the trains. He doesn't understand her language and won't speak to her at all, so she quietly waits for another train, but there isn't one. Eventually the winter weather forces her to shelter in his room. She unpacks her things and a wordless relationship begins to form.Written by
Excellent movie, with almost no dialogues and a very mysterious feel to it.
Shot in a very desolate place, this movie tells the story of a pointsman in the middle of nowhere, and a woman that mistakenly leaves the train in that particular stop. It was shot in a full year so the film could capture the ambient and the different colours of the four seasons - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. A very strange but at the same time very attractive movie.
