This film, consisting of twelve vignettes, lasts just over an hour. The group of people with whom I saw it was a mix of Lithuanian, British, American, and French. Immediate reviews ranged from "disappointing" (Lithuanian) to "interesting" (American) to "I quite liked the stories" (English). A couple of the plots weren't quite clear, but on the whole, I found this an hour very well spent. Several of the stories are quite gripping, and one only wishes they lasted longer than 5-6 minutes. We all had a feeling of being unsettled: some because the stories are just a glimpse into a life, with no finality or closure, some because racism (overt or subtle) is an unsettling topic. But it needs to be brought into the open like this.
