Experiencing Interruptions?


*an oppressive tale of human satellisation told in a dense narration with attention to visual detail and thoroughly executed with an unique picture language.

Tom lives a settled and relatively carefree life until he meets Peter again. Peter might be stupid but he's also dangerous, thus deep in Tom's memory. With Marie in tow, a girl who doesn't talk much, Peter moves in Tom's apartment for "a few days". Already one day after his arrival Peter confesses to Tom he needs a larger sum of money. Days go by. Peter and Marie spend most of their time in the apartment; Peter in front of the TV and Marie in the bedroom. One day Tom comes home after a bad day at work and learns about Peter's plan to get money he needs to settle the debts. Tom panics, he doesn't like it, the situation escalates and Peter violently reminds Tom who has the say. After that Tom seems powerless and he becomes the puppet of Peter's will, fear paralyzes him, makes him apathetic and easily irritable. When Marie tells Tom the details of her relationship with Peter, Tom realizes the terrifying truth about the course of the coming days.
