CGiii Comment

A boy is sitting at the window of the Ringbahn, the Hamburg circle railway. He looks into the setting sun with closed eyes. Beyond the window, the darkness of the tunnels and the light of an urban cityscape at dawn follow one another. Passengers come and go, another boy sits down in front of the first one, neither of them getting off the train. Hamburg’s U3 line runs once around the city. Passengers and protagonists are amid noise and music. Glances, silence, one of them drinks a Coke. The train passes the boarding stop again. One stop later, one of them does leave the train. This film, which shows a real moment of life marked by the passage of time with a fixed shot, captures the viewer’s mind with endless questions and arousing different sensations.
