Lisa has to move out of the apartment she’s shared with her friend, Mara. Her stuff needs boxing, walls need painting, and furniture has to be taken apart. A real jumble of friends, family, and helpful neighbors stumble in and out of the apartment. Over the course of just two moving days many things will break and not everything is capable of being mended. ‘The Girl and the Spider’ is a tragicomic portrayal of the need for intimacy, and the pain of separation. With a distinctive eye for composition and editing, the Zürcher-brothers frame their characters in narrow, fixed positions. Everything about their visual approach would at first glance appear tight and controlled, but chaos and catastrophe quivers just beneath the surface.
