More or Less

Austria, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Fiction)

Director: Miriam Unger

This film is exquisite! How does a film explore the tenuous nature of an ending relationship? More or Less is a film without a story; it's about the gaps in between. Both immediate and timeless, it almost slips through your fingers. Sound confusing? It's not.
