Short drama, 14 minutes
Director: Andrea Pallaoro

An elderly woman and her son struggle to coexist in a house that shelters a spectacular menagerie of birds. Surrendering to their codependence, inside a world that bears no exit, they go about their bedtime ritual resisting and succumbing to each other’s needs. Within the everydayness of their gestures and movements lurks a secret, and the anticipation of what might come is the dawning question.

It was well filmed, but I have absolutely no idea what the point of it is. It kind of seemed like the woman was fed up with her monotonous life, but other than that...why? Why was this labelled a horror?

Either it just went completely over my head, or it wasn't made clear enough. Either way, if it had made more sense it could have been a great film.

What did I just watch?!? This was weird; unclear story. Horror elements in that this woman is living a nightmare?
