Tourist home narrates different stories that happen in ten different rooms of a tourist home
When a camera trolleys along the rooms of a tourist home, pausing consistently to absorb the chatter of each of its inhabitants and trying to weave a narrative, the challenge is immense. Director Shebi confronts this with the aid of a very few moments which stand out in a film that otherwise succumbs to the tedium of confinement and monotony of movement.
There are ten rooms, each occupied by totally disconnected persons. The rooms heave with a set of weighty issues and characters dabble with the evils of society, there are pangs of desperation and the fragility of family ties is exposed. The problem with this film is that towards the middle of the narrative, there comes a strong yearning for some fresh air. The characters often seem buried in a world of their own; their actions are easily predictable.
When a helpless man, bogged down by debts gambles, we easily know what is bound to happen. Some of the stories go completely unnoticed; like that of two youths who occupy a room for apparently no reason and the cause which is later explained is scarcely reflected on their faces.
The rooms are mostly metaphorical of the actions of its occupants, filthy, crumbling and about to crush into oblivion. Shebi deserves credit for the manner in which he tries to film a group of persons in a single shot; however the sheer number of characters and the duration seem to burden him, forcing him to do a balancing act between tale and technique; an act which he does but with a trace of weariness.
