The only other people around are a seedy, possibly murderous, trio of cooks who run a scuzzy restaurant. The washed out colour scheme, the eerie sounds, the clever recurrence of certain events to create a disconcerting sense of déjà vu, all work to produce a sustained mood of disquiet. A truly extraordinary film that plays with our perception of time, space, and truth.
