Storyline

The atmosphere of a corridor between yesterday and tomorrow, where many doors open into the unknown ... A series of faces, gestures and images both real and imagined time. A mixture of dull and distant music sounds, like the sound of people dancing. And then, gradually, a community is rebuilt and dance resurfaces. The film is a series of symbols related to the troubled recent history of their country, Lithuania. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Something different
5 January 2003 | by SuicidebabeSee all my reviews

I saw this Lithuanian movie on the Stockholm Film Festival a few years ago. It's a real work of art, but is definitely not for casual viewing. If you want action, look elsewhere.

Koridorius is a very slow-paced, documentary styled movie about the tenants of a run-down apartment building somewhere in Lithuania. There's no plot or dialog, not in the usual sense anyway. Instead the focus is on the faces and simple actions of these people. And the camera takes its good time to show this, which really works since the photography of the movie is just beautiful. Some of the shots are a 10 minute long close-up of the same face, putting the viewer in an almost meditative state.

If you like to see a movie totally different from the mainstream, this is it.
