A middle aged, middle class couple (artist and architect) are considering selling their modernist London home. Their relationship, values and lifestyle are critically investigated.
There is little meaningful communication between the couple with closeness replaced by endless analysis and polite observations. Meaning in their lives appears to come from intellectualizing the minutiae of everyday life as something profound. The obsession with their home could be a substitute for a relationship.
A potentially clever film with possibly valid insights into contemporary life, however, the film is perhaps too long for what is delivered and perhaps a dramatic, life changing event in the latter half would have justified the duration.
