Sandro Aguilar | Portugal | 2008 | 99 min. | O.V. Portuguese subtitled in Spanish and English
A man who goes to a hospital to say goodbye to his dying father. An amnesiac woman who has just seen her partner die and is now alone in the world with a baby. Both meet in that undefined zone between life and death which lies sleeping in any hospital. And although they know for certain that they’ve seen each other before they don’t remember where or how. Using a fragmented narrative and a framing that submerges spatial references, Aguilar builds a single space, disconnected from the world, an aquatic, enveloping cinematic limbo.
