Hogg’s film about an artist couple facing significant life changes when their house goes on sale not only proceeds via the development of an art installation, but is an installation in and of itself: we see their mysterious alienation and sexual discord, as well as their physical and metaphysical blending into the house. As potential buyers examine the house, the most intimate details in their marriage also come under scrutiny. A subtly unsettling film with artistic quirkiness and a poignant look at marriage and human relationships.
