More info:


Automatic shades that go down regularly and yet piercingly. A heavy basement door covered in foam rubber which isolates the sound. A cold, flickering light, almost like a hospital. Another door, with a special lock, and a light box you need to turn on. You open up, get in quick, close it, and lock it. You go out, lock it again, and check if you did. Inside there’s a treasure no one else can see and cannot be shared anymore. Inside, there’s a kid who is still writing letters to his parents. And outside there’s his eternal and everyday owner: the pedophile who abducted him. Despite the clumsy attempts to take his prisoner out of his routine, or his long-dated and irregular seducing efforts, the captor watches his steps since they can expose him to his surrounding world. At times, he will even forget about his own life, but he will never manage to detach himself from the laconic spirit impregnated by a film that aims to make us uncomfortable sometimes.
