The visuals of the first short feature movie by Jaan Toomik are definitely painterly. The expressive forced contrest between bearing area and destruction, female and male, hopeful and despairingly obsence is enforced through single repetitive symbolic sequences. We are told a story about a middle aged man and middle aged woman, about their relationship, desperate attempt to get pregnant by the womes and the fear of the man facing any commitment. The imagery and the cyclic nature of the movie – there is no dialogue used – takes us occasionally from the main narrative to the atmosphere of Toomik´s earlier videoinstallations.
