| A masterpiece in storytelling
This is a masterpiece in storytelling. The script, acting, directing, cinematography and all disciplines are excellent. Several neighbours are in the courtyard of an apartment block; a couple with a baby unloading shopping from their car, a young girl playing while her heavily pregnant mum talks on the phone and another couple on the way to the cinema. Their activities are brought to a halt when they notice an unconscious man on the grass. Other people, including the emergency services, get involved. The movement of everyone is choreographed with precision as they shift between trying to help the man and continuing their own lives. As a viewer you worry about the individuals as much as you worry about the sick man. It's an incredible use of a single location to tell such a gripping story.
