“A strongly plotted character study-cum-thriller…one scene after another snaps into place with frightening precision.”
—Boyd Van Hoeij, Variety
A solitary air traffic controller fakes a social life and fills his time spying on residents of the apartment complex across the way with high-powered binoculars. Deflecting the advances of two clearly lonely women in his building, he plots to further his obsession with a married mother of two. Director/writer Kristúfek, also a renowned novelist, steadily ups the ante in chilling surprises as a devious plan plays out. In Czech, Slovak, and English with English subtitles. 35mm print courtesy of JMB Film and TV Production. (BS)
