A horror film, not about a story, but about a place, about barking dogs, desert landscapes and black corridors. A bit as if someone had told David Lynch that he could do a little un-American films, Philippe Grandrieux transforms an undefined Eastern Europe with grainy images, blurred wobbles and without dialogue into a limbo ruled by violence.
