"Good afternoon, Mrs Goldfarb."

"Good afternoon, Mr Rabinowitz. Although I'm not so sure how good it is. And you?"

"What can I say? You want your TV?"

"Yes, if you don't mind."

"Mrs Goldfarb, can I ask you a question? You won't take it personal? How many years we know each other?"

"Who's to count?"

"Why not tell the police? Maybe they could talk to Harry. He wouldn't be stealing the TV."

"I couldn't do that. Harry's my only child. He's all I have. Thank you, Mr Rabinowitz."

I've not watched that film in ages. Perhaps I shall wait until I need cheering up.

It's a very fine film. First watched it at your place and rather embaressingly I remember falling asleep mid way through. *cough*

What can I say, I am evidently a very boring film watching companion.

Think it had more to do with your comfy furniture.

think i've got most of the films so far, i'm always too late to comment and get the point though. that film is very very very bleak. especially winter.

Yeah, it's a grim sandwich alright. It's wonderfully shot though, and the Clint Mansell soundtrack is awesome, the whole package is very compelling.

I remember being in the pub with [livejournal.com profile] mr_flay some years ago before I'd seen the film and he was talking about it with people. He had this question he'd ask people. Who do you think, out of the main characters, was worst off at the end?

Also, everyone gets points if they get it, because I'm nice like that and really it's just a bit of fun :)

Gods, it's bastard of a film all right - you come out feeling like you've been in a trainwreck. It's one of those short films that feel long, too. It's only about 80mins but it's so harrowing it feels longer.

I once got [livejournal.com profile] sushiho to watch it on the basis I thought it was life affirming. She's just about still talking to me.

I've long since come to the realisation that my version of life affirming is slightly different to everyone elses...

Heh, I've never persuaded [livejournal.com profile] d_floorlandmine to watch it - he doesn't like films where bad things happen to people, unless they're 'bad guys'.

We had that followed by Train Spotting at CamGoth film club many years ago. One of my all time favorites. I watched it again the other night. In two words, unrelentlessly bleak.

I took the Sydney goths to it, as a film in the park event. No one jumped under a bus afterwards, but I didn't realise that a girl who had lost an arm was coming along...
