500 kilometres northward of Rimini. Not long before the second millennium. In a cinema, Hans Reinghold’s old film, ‘Odysseus returns” is shown. A classic but long forgotten film. In the foyer a woman who sells popcorn is sitting behind her counter, waiting. This is the last screening. While she is waiting for the film to end, she starts packing. A man, slightly dizzy, maybe drunk, comes out after the title and orders a beer – a request the woman cannot grant having no right to sell – and settles in the foyer. He is waiting for the forty-seventh minute of the film to see Odysseus parting with his beloved – again.
