GHL

 
A deserted lido on the Danube in the off season, a man in a business suit who wanders around it, an apparent telephone conversation. Fragments of quotes can be heard, a series of empty phrases that turn out to be philosophical and economic commentary relating to the global economic crisis. Everyone seems to know what’s going wrong, but in the end nothing changes.
