A cinematic gimmick and at the same time a tender story about the price of adulthood, a subtle commentary on addiction but also a bit of a romance, Rhinos Dragasaki's first feature film is full of emotions even when the narrative is over. With pop aesthetics and a pervasive atmosphere of nostalgia, the story is told of Anna, a lonely woman who sees her methodically constructed routine collapse when she is forced to take care of an unknown girl, Persia. This is the moment Anna is called upon to change radically to take on an unprecedented responsibility for her.
Anna's character attracts the most interest as she unfolds her complex psychological profile through Maria Kitsu's rigorous, though sometimes exaggerated, interpretation. Between nerves, insecurities and stress, Anna finds balance by consuming large quantities of "Cosmic Candy", which brings her into a hallucinatory state. Sweet is a link to her minor - and therefore harmless - past for her, while Dragasaki cleverly presents it as a metaphor for psychotropic drugs.
