Review

 can be seen as an extremely simple film. The film consists of only 23 shots and the camera always stays in place. The film features only three characters; the director and the director’s parents. It all takes place inside the house with no exterior scenes, no lighting, and no sound effects. The story is quite simple; the daily life of a family. Just like any other family, they eat, they clean the house, etc. Sometimes they talk of important matters, but often discuss menial things such as the short height of the daughter. Yet it’s easy too see that the family life is no easy matter. Train noises are heard constantly and even in daytime sunlight is nowhere to be found inside the house. The parents make ends meet by selling cow hide bags. Beneath the simple exterior lies a not so simple theme. The father desperately calls for his daughter only to fall asleep exhausted, while his exhausted breathing is drowned out by the ticking of the clock. Even while everyone is asleep, the clock continues to tick and tock. Life continues even though no one knows what lies ahead of them is hope or despair.
