An excercise in dying
The theme of the film is simple and urgent. A man sees a girl die on the street. He watches without doing anything. How distant are you as a spectator? And how involved could you be?
When we see life as an exercise in dying, death is a challenge. We are preparing to let go of life at some point in time. We watch how others find the strength to exhale their last breath.
