Right there where the cinema of the Kaurismäki brothers crosses with American independent film, like a flower in the desert, Matthias Huser’s first feature is born. Times change, and Leonard and Marbella’s marriage is about to come to an end. The sensation of twilight is reinforced by the task Leonard must carry out: traveling lost highways and removing obsolete phone booths. He is not alone in that monotonous task: he is joined by Ben, a silent convict on parole. In those places where not only water is scarce, but also voices, a B-grade novel Leonard reads melancholically seems to offer him the words he can’t come up with in order to explain how he feels. Musical numbers that seem out of Sam Shepard’s mind and staged by David Lynch also coexist in a post-communist Polish desert that looks exactly like that of the westerns we know by heart, in which the future and the horizon blend together and are always glanced from a distance.
