admirable work
1 November 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A beautiful - bitter short film about the loss of sense of life. An old couple. The desires of wife. The hobby of man. The impecable cinematography. The toilet as piggy bank. And the last scene. Symbols - from the soles to the hearing aid, the words of woman , in which the church is the axis of the demand, the scene of instant lotto millionaire are clues for the desert of a non sense life. So, a great film.
