Audrius Stonys’ essay "Uku Ukai" leaves aside any narration in favour of a poetic and metaphysical depiction of the relationship that human beings, faced with their inevitable end, maintain with their bodies: like in a session of hypnosis, the voiceover of a woman whispers to the film’s characters the attitudes, the gestures, etc.. This mechanical vision of bodies is built in parallel with sequences showing a reclusive old woman, alone, in a small apartment, who seems to be meditating on existence as a pure movement, dreaming, while snow falls on the town, of the young body she too once inhabited. In another life.
