The language of love.
A movie that plays solely on the imagination, using language (quite literally as the story unfolds) suggestion and sound to evoke some of the greatest "chill moments" I have experienced in quite a while.
It's also quite witty and somewhat surreal at times. It reminded me of listening to an old radio play, à la Orson Welles War of the Worlds, with a bit of Sartre's No Exit thrown in for good measure.
One reviewer is quoted as saying: Think of this witty, economically gory little tour de force as 28 Days Later written by linguist Noam Chomsky.
That's pretty apt.
...and on a separate note; this is worth checking out also.
