Winner of the "Bronze Award" at the 1993 Tokyo International Film Festival.
After five years of traveling abroad, Alex returns home. All he has with him is a back-pack, a skateboard and a slip of paper with an ex-girlfriend's address. When this address turns out to be a demolished building, Alex feels quite... well, lost. His long journey has ended on a pile of rubble. He moves into a neighborhood of an odd and lively array of characters making desperate and humorous attempts at simulating and belonging. He just wants to become part of a family. Any family.

Excellent dialog; minimalistic and somewhere between realism and farce. I just liked the atmosphere. The building, the characters, the music. So what if the plot wasn't gripping. It was a lovely meandering time.
