Das schlafende Mädchen

The sleeping girl

With one long shot the camera presents the surrounding of a suburbian colony of single family houses. A clean ideal, but deserted and with a ghostly atmosphere. Only at the end of the film there is a sign of human presence: a message is left on an answering machine. An insurance agent talks about the possibilities of life-insurance, the perfect pension scheme and his lost ball-pen.
