Rain

Rain tells the story of a violent murder which the main character barely sees. Set largely on a train the story is concerned with perception on the part of those who observe. Seeing what appears to be a woman (carrying a lady’s umbrella) pursued by a man (based again on the umbrella carried) – the observer and the film audience – constructs a vision of threat. Assuming – by the continued progress of the woman’s umbrella that the threat is false, the observer wrongly dismisses the vision.
