In Bocca Al Lupo is very curious. It starts off with a girl talking to a mirror. It then moves on to show the same girl lying bloody on the floor, with a man looming over her. There is an interplay of dialogue, and it is only after a few frames that we may realize what’s actually going on.
I had to watch this a few times to understand how the scenes mesh with each other. (Reading this post by The Flick Fanatic’s Companion also helped me understand it better.) Thought-provoking, at the very least. By the way, In Bocca Al Lupo may look very indie in origin, but this won some awards, and was screened in a couple of film festivals.
(This one has few lines, but there are English subtitles available, nevertheless. This other low-budget film seems to be filmed in just one room, too. Or how about this curious, seemingly allegorical short film that involves death?)
