Tënk's film review

In this brief but striking political film essay, you never find out who is speaking on screen in a neutral voice. All you see is the person's chest, in a bath or shower, set in contrast to abstract images conjuring a street, then switching to inside the body – cells and blood – probing places where military torture has a left deep-seated and permanent mark. We are held captive by this purposefully understated portrayal of the wrongs suffered in war-torn countries. Highly arresting.
