Alledaags is a contem­pla­tive short docu­men­tary about the daily lives of three people. A blonde woman works in the food industry and constantly fills boxes with instant meals. A prison warder spends the languid day behind his computer. The daily job of a pris­oner is to clean the prison and take care of the laundry. From the moment the alarm clock rings until they go to bed, the char­ac­ters are followed. Alledaags shows the daily regu­larity, the grind even. Waiting for a bus, the ticking of a clock, the sand­wich from a lunchbox, feeding a para­keet or smoking a ciga­rette. People do not talk or smile, the char­ac­ters are so serious they look like actors. Without comment or inter­views, Rocha Salgado has managed to make an inti­mate and cine­mato­graph­i­cally remark­able portrait of these people. Some­thing she previ­ously proved capable of with her grad­u­a­tion film Zo is dat. Part of Every Picture Tells a Story.
