The influence of Wenders and especially Antonioni permeates Nanouk Leopold's dour but intriguing Dutch drama (2005), with Maria Kraakman as a Monica Vitti-like limbo dweller coming undone amid elegantly composed angstscapes. She's floating between family life in Holland and development-aid gigs in Egypt when a colleague's inexplicable suicide forces her to examine her own life. She begins tailing her husband, even though his activities seem perfectly innocent, and she gamely faces the withering resentment of the sister who was once her husband's lover. A slight and overdeliberate film, but its wide-screen mise-en-scene shimmers, and its emotional payoff packs a quiet wallop. In Dutch with subtitles. 90 min.
