It’s love at first sight when Nora and Aaron first meet on a rainy day in an underground station. While she is a dreamer who believes in luck, he is convinced nothing happens by chance. Aaron’s fate is soon sealed, which changes Nora’s life in an instant. Her respite after this is Natan, a stranger who saves Nora’s life twice as she wanders aimlessly through the night – the only way she can numb her pain. Though Nora seeks Natan’s closeness, she can’t figure out what it is that connects them. Saskia Rosendahl (Lore, LFF 2012) gives a powerful performance, while debut director Minoguchi creates a romantic narrative of ambitious proportions, effortlessly looping between the present and past, all the while making clever use of cinema as an unfurling emotional landscape.
