In the first part Love me tender and ‘the viewer to enter the private space, the house, the actor. In the second The Sandman and ‘instead of the actor to visit the house of the viewer.

The dream, the dream world is a fundamental part of foreignness ‘to the visible world, as well as the experience more intimate and original and’ crossed by moments of ignorance and inadvertence. The stranger who, within the policies of the West, it is assumed to be only from the outside can not prove that as an intruder. Conversely, if we take the stranger as something that can not be apprehended; if we take it as something that strikes us when troubles us, the stranger who appears in the form of an extra-ordinary, that is something you can not find a proper place in the order from time to time in force. The surprise of the famous refrain of Rimbaud: JE est un autre. And it ‘s exactly in this surprise, or the possibility of its occurrence is always open, that your never fails to come to terms with that stranger that always already inhabits.
