Storyline

On a business trip to the Cannes Film Festival, Manhee is accused of being dishonest, and fired. A teacher named Claire goes around taking photos with a Polaroid camera. She gets to know Manhee and sympathizes with her. Claire is like a person who can see Manhee's possible future or past selves, through the mysterious power of the beach tunnel. Through taking photos, Claire has acquired the ability to look slowly at things, and to transform objects. Now, Claire goes with Manhee to the café where she was fired. We look forward to seeing Claire's power at work. Written by AnonymousB

I've changed...
20 August 2019 | by kevin_51784See all my reviews

Huh? was my initial thought. Some scenes I felt made me mildly embarrassed but on reflection now realise it was a choice, by the director and myself. So a few days on and, much like the films premise, I've changed (but not my rating), I now nod my head and think hmmm.

This film has made me want to find out more about its directors work.
