Heading home after a long trip, two sisters, one ailing, the other with her young son, check into a hotel in a foreign city readying itself for war; the gulf between them grows as both, in their different ways, submit to erotic longing (depicted surprisingly explicitly). As nightmarish (and grotesquely amusing) as Kafka, this largely wordless film explores the all-consuming human need for communication and kindness.
