One evening a strange series of events takes place. A clerk is degraded, a lost immigrant is violently attacked, a magician makes a terrible mistake. The following day, the signs of chaos takes hold as madness grips a board of directors and the city itself is strangled by a horrendous traffic jam. In the midst of the mayhem, one man stands out - Karl, who is covered from head to toe in soot from the store he just tried to burn down for the insurance money. The new millennium is blamed for casting such a vast mental breakdown and Karl gradually realizes just how difficult it is to be human.

This is an amazing and strange movie. When I saw it nearly 10 years ago I marveled at a scene about a traffic jam which lasted for hours. Something that never happened here at that time. It has happened to me recently.
