A film where the director turns his camera on his own domestic existence and
essays to show it 'like it is' without the structure usually imposed by
filmmaking. What he tries to mirror is the essential aloneness of people, life
in suspense, of unmotivated being. Adult life is seen in black and white; that
of his infant son, Max, is in colour. The contrast suggests the loss of joy
that comes with maturity and knowledge.
