Cinematography
27 November 2016 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

The star of this movie is the cinematography! Every frame is perfectly arranged to create a wonderfully composed picture that relates to the subject of the action taking place. This was my first observation when I started watching this marvelous film.

The story is easy - an agoraphobic recluse lets a man (the outside world) into her life. As she progresses to the point where she is willing to allow herself to relate to him and eventually leave her apartment is reflected in the very items and arrangement in each scene. There is a marvelous scene when the camera is pulled back and you can see the staged set. The divide between him and her cannot be more clearly stated and then the divide is crossed - her big challenge has begone!

For art cinema lovers this film is a must see! Bravo!
