Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
On his way to a business conference in Stockholm on a midsummer night's eve, a French salesman (Roland Blanche) experiences a 92-minute stopover in Copenhagen in this minimalist, almost plotless, concoction that benefitted from Dirk Bruel's almost lyrical photography but little else. The Frenchman, arriving at a friend's apartment, finds himself alone with a suicidal girl who speaks no French at all. The two strangers nevertheless form a wordless bond that is broken when the Frenchman leaves to catch his train. The film enjoyed some success in Europe but was dismissed in its home country, reportedly seen there by only 3,500 paying customers.
