film profile
is the poetic evocation of a difficult moment of childhood, the moment when you realise how lonely adults are and experiment that loneliness. The main protagonist, André, lives alone with his mother who has been depressed since his father left. He has a friend called Susana, but one day she moves away. He makes friends with his intriguing neighbour, a Russian guy who goes on strange errands every evening, carrying a big sports bag, but he, too, eventually goes away. See Film Focus
