Doma (At Home) (1986)

The story of the film At home takes place in the early 1950s. This is the story of a man and his part in the 2nd World war, during which he is forced to murder his wife. After the war he falls in love with another woman, whom he also has had to murder. The film “At home” evokes at least three themes: life as a field of memory to which everybody returns; the theme of impossible love; the inevitability of death. Formally the film tries to recapture the style and aesthetics of “film noire” of the 1950s. The structure of the film is also homage to Hitchcock, an impossible homage, because it is an attempt to make Hitchcockian suspense out of the socrealistic imagery and content.
