There is a decorated officer at the door, walks out and then a cut to just his lower half walking across the frame --- all in slow motion. It is as though watching a dream when even if you are in a hurry, you cannot move any faster than you are going. He confronts the Clergyman who has been repeatedly filling beakers using a giant shell and then dropping them into a growing pile of shattered glass --- not one fluid scene, but shown as a series of cuts. The shaking/warping of the frame is very disorienting and ends with the Clergyman looking afraid; his state of mind(?). I found the jump in space with the crawling sequence, ending with him running, interesting and it really showed is desperation. The longer take of just his eyes reveals his longing for or need for something, but the viewer does not know, yet. The slow motion fight scenes seems to suggest this is the Clergyman's desire to hurt the officer to get his lover/wife, presumably, and hurt the other Clergyman, presumably his "boss", to throw away his vows (to "get the woman"). Sometimes I feel as though the Clergyman sees one reality and reacting to it, but everyone else is in a different reality.
The whole film seems to be a surrealist dream of longing and wanting to change one's situation.
