Although this film does require a bit of patience in a few of its moments, overall I think it was rather lovely.
The story's premise is that single men are being watched to see how they use their kitchens: specifically, how they move (where they walk) in them.
But it's really about the relationship that develops between one observer and his host, which is, of course, forbidden.
A sincere story about friendship between two lonely men, this bittersweet film is not for those fond of action or speed in movies. If, however, you have 90 minutes and want to see a glimpse of another culture in another time (mid 20th century), give this one a try. It honestly does drag a bit now and then, but not often; the stellar acting more than makes up for it. Cheers!
