A moving camera takes us along an endless row of cash registers in a desolate supermarket. The cashiers are waiting behind their empty desks and it’s quiet as a mouse… The contrast between the inert location on the one side, chaotic and lively in normal circumstances, and the moving camera on the other, makes this absurd sequence into a kind of dream image. This is opposed to the realism of the setting, the cashiers, the colours and the typical, hardly aesthetic lighting. The result is a perceptual maze, a strange mix of absurdity, realism, sociological aspects and an intriguing rhythm of the image.
