- Fiction Film
An eight-year old boy, Pirandello, lives with his father, a railway worker, in a small cottage by the railway. Every day he observes life and the people who pass by, who have also, in one way or another, been part of his fathers life. Through this exploration he uncovers his own past, his identity, and his future path. And there is a femme fatale involved. She has been away for eight years and is now coming back to town by train. The film is a little arabesque melodrama, with an existentialist undertone and a touch of black humor.
