"My house. I don't know exactly where it stands in this world. All I know is that it's mine. Many people have lived in my house. Some only pass through while others stay. Some of them are still there. Sometimes, it can be very cold in my house. I'd like to know how many people are still living in my house and who they are. The trouble is, they often move from one place to another, go away and then come back. We eat together at times but some of them are always missing. The people who live in my house often change rooms, perhaps too often. I can't understand it. I can't count anymore. I still have time to learn who is where." (Sharunas Bartas)
"Bartas's house is neither a micro-society nor even a deformed reflection of the diversity of the exterior world. No, there is no symbolic or representative interest in this affair for Bartas's world is a condensed version of nothing and delights in that fact. It's rather a moving world of spirits and ghosts, condemned to brush against one another without really meeting since they have all emerged from a single perpetual dream: that of a young man who no longer wants to wake up, immersed as he is in this world of fascinating spectres. (...) Preceded and concluded by a letter read in voice-over from Bartas to his mother, the
film lasts two hours and contains almost no dialogue. However, Bartas orders his visions with such ecstatic power that he never bores us. Indeed, there's no complacency during this long and beautiful dream. It's not total chaos but on the contrary, a logical development, the feeling of an inner logic as crazily rational as a waking dream..." (Frédéric Bonnaud - Les Inrockuptibles)
