NotesThis is a tediously slow abstract meditation on the relationship between a mother and her son. The mother is dying in pain (we don't know the cause) and is unable to walk or feed herself. The film's slow movement and alienating technique will put most off but others may be able to lend themselves to its quiet experience.
