With Du comes the portrait of a couple who are confronted with the complexity of their relationship; a man and a woman overcome with frustration. They avoid each other’s eyes. Their words ring hollow. Have they reached a critical moment in their life as a couple, as seems to be suggested by the insistent close-ups, the juxtaposition of seemingly repetitive scenes and the square photography format which traps and suffocates the characters?
The story unfolds amidst an enchanting décor, belying a dramatic plot which is unintentionally – or perhaps intentionally – punctuated by touches of humour.
