Sometimes I Think About Dying

Rachel Lambert, USA 2023, 91’
Polish premiere
Manodrome The Persian Version

A romance full of subtle sense of humor. Fran's life is a montage of constant repetitions: cottage cheese for both breakfast and dinner interrupted by filling out spreadsheets in the office. The woman breaks her daily routine by fantasizing about how she could die. Robert, a colleague from work, who invites her to the cinema, shakes up this status quo.
