Greek character study about a strange, asexual girl and her promiscuous but equally odd best friend. The conceit in this study of the ineffable otherness of other people is that we watch these young women as if we're watching a nature documentary about animals who communicate in ...

A quirky tale of a socially awkward young woman dealing with the imminent death of her father and a budding romantic involvement with an engineer who is visiting her workplace. Most of the quirkiness is supplied by her less inhibited best friend. At times dark, often awkward, but...
