    A really lovely exploration of loss, life and love through someone's memories and their loved ones relation to those memories!

    I really love this kind of indie soft Sci-Fi, with their aesthetically tranquil quaint worlds (see also Ex Machina, Her, kind of The Lobster).

This film is one of the only four Carpenter films that I haven't seen before, ALL of which I have finally got access too (from streaming services)…
