Storyline

In a post-apocalyptic world, Devi is one of the chosen few: she lives alone in a cell where her meals are provided; her link with others is via radio phone. She and one particular friend, Ari, talk every day, taking imaginary sensory walks, describing to each other the beach or a glade. Photos of Ari are by Devi's phone. Devi has a window to the outside, and young nomads sometimes look in, bang on the window, and make fun of her. She's safe from them. Then, one day, she and M, one of the nomads, begin what may become a friendship. Food, water, earth, and a rock change hands, then their hands touch. There's safety inside: can Devi share her feelings with Ari? Are there alternatives? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A woman struggles with the decision to leave the safety of her bunker for the possibility of love and freedom amongst the post apocalyptic desert.
5 March 2005 | by shekidorSee all my reviews

Outside is a beautiful story about overcoming the the fear we have within us for the unknown and commonly denounced. It tells the story of two people from two separate, yet adjacent worlds who discover the inexorable connection of their past and humanity. The characters are simple yet vivid, and the emotional contact of M and Ari's interaction evokes the raw and unspoken passion that we all look for: weakening yet exhilarating, frightening yet empowering. The cinematography is sharply charged with the contrast between the clinical and desaturated life of the inside with the brilliant and living life of the outside. The production design is textured with the isolation Ari feels within. The performances are powerful with yearning and truth. The budding attraction seen on screen is sparse of dialog, but rich with deep and provocative communication. "Outside" is saliently beautiful, in concept, craft and meaning.
