At first sigh, a bizarre idea. At the second - an useful parable. About life not reduced at hours or months or decades. B>ut at words. As good start to discover not the silence but the deep solitude. A simple, convincing story. About a man and the world around him. And about the last word, in a phone cabin . A comedy far to be defined as black. Or just as comedy. Because, in essence, it represents good kick to reflection.
