Under the name of one of the most famous american jazz dancings, 'Foxtrot', the film pretends to show us one story to make us thinks about the human absurdity. First, the movie make us feel the pure anxiety inside a home where all the members are living a familiar crisis without exit; and the parallel form, move us to a open field in which a young soldier is unconnected with all the things that are happening in his country. He is helping in the front position of the army. Michael is witness to the wear of his wife and constantly receives mournings by their family, shut in his home that each day is less calm. Meanwhile, his son is doesn't know anything, because he is fighting in the army. A perfect drama. According to the critic, a jewel of the seventh art.
