Olivier Smolders – Axolotl (2018) (HD)

The story of a man lost in a labyrinth.

Six months before his death, Kafka wrote “The Burrow”. In this short story, a half-human, half-animal narrator describes the labyrinth he has built for himself to live apart from the world. He multiplies the strategies to protect himself from an invisible enemy who is perhaps only himself. Or death approaching in the darkness of a neighbouring gallery. The film “Axolotl” is a variation on this theme. The main character accepts a job as a janitor in an old building. He discovers a network of galleries that allow him to observe the tenants. But is it really the tenants that he observes in this way?
