In Kaliningrad two Lithuanian boys meet two Russian girls. They have difficulties in finding places where they can sleep together. But this is the only problem they do solve. All four justly feel miserable because their lives are meaningless (the recurrent dull and poorly kept house façads could well be taken as a comparative symbol). In addition, everyone is so absorbed by his or her own distress and hardly capable of bothering about the anguish of the others. The three days end with a pervasive lack of contact. Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

Four sensitive and handsome youngsters, two Lithuanians boys and two Russians girls mooch in Kaliningrad for three days, limpets who end up not failing to cling to the rock. There's hardly any dialogue or plot to speak of. The director leaves you a lot of room to put your own version on events, for me he therefore makes it a universal story about delicate young people who are sad about the impossibility of living authentically. I'll share with you a story, for which I crave your indulgence. At a recent Christmas play, where Peter Pan was being performed, a young boy plaintively called out at the end, "I love you Captain Hook". Adults discussing this took it as evidence of some sort of aberrance. But what is Captain Hook, other than a try-hard who has been maimed by a crocodile that haunts him, and who nobody loves? There's a sensitivity in youth that the world cannot tolerate.

I cannot offhand think of a movie in terms of visual aesthetic that is more beautiful than Three Days. It's a film you have to give yourself up to, as if you're an oracle allowing a god to channel their voice through you. I chose to put in on the evening before Christmas Eve, a night I have to myself, where I can relax, before having to go see people on Christmas Day. It's predominantly a shades of brown movie, though ghostly white gets in there all the time (even grisaille), and blue here and there. The locations are all ruins that vary in level of decrepitude. The youngsters end up existing out of residences that are cave like and primal. At one point they are scattered in the ruins of a church, and it's as if pigeons had been scattered, a quite unbelievable scene.

As sad as these youths are, something more beautiful is happening for them than anything that has ever happened in my life. Sometimes it is better to cry than to live in the world, I certainly regret not having cried more in my life.

There is a juxtaposition throughout the movie between the four youths, and people who are yahooing or fornicating. Not everyone goes through the metanoia described in this movie! This is one to keep on watching over and again.
