Camels. 'Even in the desert, where the air is dry and the sun burns, where the night is extremely cold, where there is always a sandstorm blowing and where no plant will grow, even there they survive. And apparently their eyes are always moist.'A man and a women meet each other. They both have a family, but feel the necessity to leave together. They drive to a hotel by the sea. Only on the way does the man ask the woman her name. They turn out to have a lot in common, both their fathers were schoolteachers, they both grew up on the coast and neither of themmanaged to study medicine. But these similarities are not the cause of their joint flight. The real reason is that they are exhausted.Five years after the more cheerful Motel Cactus, Camel(s) is also set in a hotel. Not a hotel room where panting can be heard through the thin walls, but where suppressed human emotions escape with a sigh. The film is shot on DV in black and white, which was then transferred to 35mm film material, providing a grainy, documentary effect. The DV camera was however not used hand-held: the camera is still and static. Camel(s) is an honest and moving film, with fantastic acting which provides a profound insight into the emotions of forty-somethings.
