Experiencing Interruptions?

R.E.M. Rapid Eye Movement

A couple in crisis, director and actress, discuss a movie. Reality and fantasy, past and present are intertwined in the script. Time is constantly reconstituting itself, bringing to the surface memories of love affairs and conflicts. The script thus becomes the story of two couples of different ages involved with each other. The younger ones see the deadlocks of the older ones as a gloomy possibility, while the older ones are "renewed" and immersed even more in their own deadlocks. Time does not go back, mistakes are not corrected, and relationships end up cannibalistic.
