This unconventional documentary by Andreas Bolm gives us an opportunity to peer into the private lives of Ildiko and Feri, in its most intimate details. Bolm shows everyday events without any dramatising, focusing on the unity of picture and sound. Form and substance look equal. The relationship of the old couple in question has become a community without words, in which love only exists in memory. Day and night are separated by the rituals of getting up and going back to bed again. A film about the very core of human life... or its loneliness?
