98 Octanas

(Portugal, 2006, 94 minutes)

A man on the run and a woman travelling without aim meet on a highway rest area; he gives her a lift and they start an awkward relationship. Aimless, plotless road movie whose stilted dialogue and non-existant characters make it very hard to sit through, despite excellent visuals and credits.
