A conundrum
30 October 2012 | by plamya-1See all my reviews

A fascinating dialog and brilliant as a thought piece, but virtually devoid of cinematic effects- perhaps this is a form of "blindness" in itself. A young man comes to the office of a psychiatrist asking for help, but refuses to fill out the the medical information for the receptionist, and insists that the conversation take place in the reception area, rather than move into the counselors inner office. Reminiscent of the HBO series "In Treatment," or "The Booth at the End," combined with an ancient Arab fable in which a young man consults a jinn for advice.The twist is, however that he refuses to take any "treatment," but instead insists that he be believed, and be provided a miraculous cure.

We only see TWO pairs of eyes, which see literally, but refuse to "see" in an abstract sense The third pair of eyes is presumably supplied by the viewer, although perhaps there is a hint at metaphysical blindness as well.

What we see is an office is setting that is contemporary, with few furnishings. The two men are dressed in robes, with awkwardly placed head-scarves. An abstract work of art hangs on the wall. Is appearance a form of disappearance, hiding in plain sight?
