    Like a moving cubist painting, Where is Where? is created to confuse, and yet inspire. With the combination of silent stock footage, and sparse theatrical settings the film may seem very long to some, even if it is only an hour. Making it to the end, however, is very rewarding if you are willing to put in the effort.
  2. Far more deserving of the hoopla Mike Figgis received for his single-take, multicamera drama "Timecode" (2000), Finnish visual artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s experimental narrative truly pushes forward the possibilities of split-screen cinema.
  3. Anyone looking for some idiosyncratic, visually stimulating entertainment this week could do worse than Where Is Where?, an intriguing narrative experiment by the Finnish artist and filmmaker Eija-Liisa Ahtila.

    Ultimately, the film attempts to confront its vague ideas with a self-contained bit of narrative, whose neat rendering clashes with, but fails to make sense of, the messiness of what came before.
