Pauza za ručak jednog para ne ide po planu otkako su započeli razgovor o renoviranju kupatila u svojoj brvnari. Odjednom počinju da se raspravljaju što vodi do serije nesporazuma. Inspirisano razgovorom koji je režiser imao sa svojom ženom “Poluzid” priča o poteškoćama u komunikaciji, i kako to nekad vodi do glupih i kasnije smešnih nesporazuma.

The Half Wall

Short film

Director: Ida Hansen Eldøen

Norway, 2018

Duration: 6 min

A couples lunch break does not go as planned when they start a discussion about how they can renovate their cabin bathroom. They suddenly find themselves in a heated argument which lead to a series of misunderstandings. Based on a conversation the director had with her wife, «The Half Wall» tells a true story about the difficulties of communication, and how it sometimes leads to stupid and (later) laughable misunderstandings.
