There is a dripping tap and the repetition of minimal action before we even discover that we are in a space vehicle and only later that we gather everything is robotic and that parcels have to be delivered. a whole pile of parcels to be delivered all around the planetary system. Indeed the first half of the film is fairly static and we only gradually learn a little more and we get to go outside. Despite the claustrophobic nature of the early section it is always very well shot but when we go outside and the beleaguered Fukushima doubles as the various inter galactic stops the cinematography is even finer. But it is creepy. The walks to the recipients are worrying and the confrontations decidedly odd. I would not rush to watch this extraordinary film again but it is a unique experience.
