85 minutes

A lonely security guard working the surveillance camera night shift at a supermarket spots a young cleaning lady whom he takes a liking to, and starts following her everywhere... even after work. Dry but extremely sweet observational comedy that takes the sting out of its potentially unpalatable premise by wrapping it in acute character observation and some wonderfully detached sight gags.
