ABOUT THE FILM

How does a person accept the death of a loved one? When Victoria's husband dies because of too much liver pate, she buries him in a special casket equipped with a closed-circuit camera that transmits his dead image into a small monitor. Shutting herself from the world, she places the monitor next to her bed and forms an intimate relationship with the television screen.

日本人ですが理解できました。 大事な人の死を受け止めるという事は大変な事です。 彼女は人間らしく、共感できると思いました。

この映画の世界観は、日本人には理解しずらいのかもしれません。

Mmmm... It feels like it's lacking something. Maybe it's just me. Or it's supposed to be like that. Will watch it again.

I agree with MK, but I specifically like that marginal feel. I prefer it over a mainstream feel, for sure.

彼女は2度夫を失った感じかな? (私だったら、棺にいる人間なんて見たくないけど)

Very innovative. I like the static shots and slow pace... especially in this MTV world.

Very well done short film in terms of the script, acting, setting, structuring, and other production aspects. Looks very professional but still possesses the "marginal" atmosphere of an independent production.
