Ingrid can see in her dreams. The way the world around her looks, her husbands office, their favourite restaurant... memories. Its when Ingrid wakes each morning and opens her eyes that she suddenly remembers she is blind. With her life dramatically changed, Ingrid has retreated to the safety of her apartment where she can feel in control once again. Her imagination becomes her reality - her deepest fantasies, desires and fears provide a constant internal monologue. But how can Ingrid make sense of all that is happening to her and who can she trust now?
This film does begin with some very explicit pornographic scenes, but I do hope that that doesn't put people off. It is an intelligent, interesting film that touches on loss and loneliness in a thought-provoking way. There are times, during the film, when you aren't sure whether what is happening is real or in the protagonist's head and that gives the film an almost fairy-tale feel.
It is well worth watching, and has some good relationship discussion points. Just keep it away from the kids!
