Guernsey

Guernsey

Anna is a quiet woman of thirty, an irrigation specialist who writes reports on projects in developing countries. During one of her visits abroad a female collegue commits suicide. No one seems to know why this woman killed herself and thus, for the first time, Anna realizes that she can remain unknown even to those most dear to her. She begins to observe her family, her husband, and her child, and to ask herself what she means to them.

The film explores the sometimes vast, silent terrain that can develop in long-term relationships, and it does so in the language of glances and gestures that so often substitute for conversation.
