Shorts 6: A Question of Timing
Life Is Short
A couple separates. Elisa has taken a job outside the country and Manuela, who lived with her five years, has decided not to accompany her. Unable to say goodbye, they spend the last morning together as refugees under the shower water. A sensitive, deceptively simple film that lingers long after viewing, The Shower was the winner of Best Short Film at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.
