I don't mean me with my opinion of this movie. It's not that I was storming out of the theatre at the International Film Festival at Berlin. Nor that anybody else that watched this movie did. But there is a certain kind of melancholy that comes through the screen directly at you!

There is this man, that has a briefcase with him and he knocks at a door, but no one opens. Then he meets a woman, who's looking for the same person he is. If that sounds boring to you, than you shouldn't watch the rest of the movie. Although it does have some beautiful arranged sequences/pictures for you, if you bare to stay with it. I did, but I neither do I know, if I can really recommend this movie nor if I should tell everyone not to watch it ... It is spiritual and slow, if that does help with your decision! ;o)
