Film description

Reality mixes with dream and fiction in The Wait, a world swirling with remembrances of Tarkovski films where death/rebirth are one and the same and can be announced by telephone. Two sisters living deep in a forest struggle to deal with their mother’s death. Angela tries to be the feet-on-the-ground realist and so it is sensitive Emma who picks up the phone to hear an enigmatic voice announcing their mother’s imminent return to the living. The mood thickens, as mourning becomes an oneiric experience. ‘In making The Wait I was inspired by Russian science-fiction films,’ claims M. Blash, adding that the film is mythopoetry, a story that is both true and completely unreal.
