I kind of love the Japanese subtitles on this. Not that I know what they say. Regardless, I was given Interiors on dvd for my birthday, and I've been really interested in an idea that's pretty prevalent in it - the permanance of architecture in the face of family/emotional/traumatic history (sounds pretentious, i know). I'm really interested in the way the space never changes throughout the course of the film, traumatic events occur throughout the course of the film in the homes of it's characters, but the spaces themselves remain completely unchanged, motionless. People move through them, coming and going, leaving barely a trace on the spaces they occupy, disapearing into the ocean. This all makes me very uncomfortable.
