    The Green Ray

    ★★★★

    Delphine, a woman who after breaking up with her long-time engaged partner, makes unfulfilling trips to a trio of resorts in a sentimental journey that captures one's craving for solitude and the loneliness that accompanies it.

    You don’t need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Don’t even listen, simply wait. Don’t even wait. Be quite still and solitary.

    - Franz Kafka

    You'd think that with no plot or character development, or rather; a weak narrative structure and a poorly delineated character; that The Man Who Sleeps wouldn't be such a good film. The original source; the 1967 novel by Georges Perec didn't even cause much of a stir and neither did…
