A man works as a diver in his day shift while a woman works as a dentist at her night shift. Sharing a cup of coffee and a goodbye kiss is their only form of daily interaction. He struggles with his work while she has trouble sleeping. The rainfall echoes their declining relationship.
Presentation with Priit & Olga Pärn
«Parn uses noise in sumptuously caressing tandem with visuals throughout these sections. The resulting clamour serves as a stark reminder that some senses are always active. In the nebulous womb-world of sleep, with all its sensory confusion, ears are left nakedly open and the disturbances whirl forth until it’s hard to make out if the spoon made the noise or the noise made the spoon. This confusion is delicately felt and amusingly described, and lifts the film from its murky rain-streaked waters.»
