Having recently lost her sight, Ingrid retreats to the safety of her home—a place where she can feel in control, alone with her husband and her thoughts. After a while, Ingrid starts to feel the presence of her husband in the flat when he is supposed to be at work. At the same time, her lonely neighbor who has grown tired of even the most extreme pornography shifts his attention to a woman across the street. Ingrid knows about this but her real problems lie within, not beyond the walls of her apartment, and her deepest fears and repressed fantasies soon take over.

Wow. What a fantastic discovery this film was. I was expecting typical foreign indie quirk, but this film actually delivers something far more real and powerful. Think 'Stranger than Fiction' sprinkled with a dash of 'Adaptation'.

I can say that I rarely experience films that so honestly and effectively invite the viewer into the depth and complexity of a fantasy-prone character's interior life.

If you're okay with subtitles, and are interested in a well-developed character working through her own fear and self-doubt with elegance and imagination, this film might be for you.

I will definitely be checking out 'Oslo, 31. August' and 'Louder than Bombs'.

Brilliant in the beginning. I even loved the weird cuts in the middle. But towards the end it turned way to surrealistic IMHO. Still pretty good and definitely worth to be seen.

"It's all based on idea that for a woman, whose vision is the same whether her eyes are open or closed, the barrier between dreams and reality can be terribly thin".
