Fetish (Fetisch)

Scene from "Fetish"

An old man tinkers with a broken projector. It seems as if he has been repairing it forever. Suddenly, the stillness is punctuated by the snowball of a young girl hitting his window. The impact sets off a chain of events that slowly drive the old man back into the deepest melancholy of his past in the increasingly desperate attempt to relive moments that have haunted him his whole life.
