The Exchange

2011, Israel/Germany, 94m, DCP

A man comes home at a time of day he’s never been there before. A time when the light hits it differently, when the humming of the fridge is the only audible sound. For a moment it seems to him like he has walked into the house of a stranger, empty and silent at a desolate mid-day hour. All of a sudden, he sees the ordinary objects that make up his life — the parking lot, the stairs, the full mailboxes — in a new light. Observing from the outside, he is awed by the mystery and magic of his own life. But is this life still truly his own? A Match Factory release
