Emil is single, Vera is married. Once a week they meet in the hotel room No. 408. When Emil suggests more than just occasional meetings, everything changes. While Vera is trying to decide what to do, Emil's exgirlfriend Klara unexpectedly shows up.
“Room 408 is an insightful story addressing the relationship decisions of two couples. In his narration, Turk is unpredictable and at the same time ruthlessly frank.” Explanation of the FIPRESCI award, Festival of Slovenian Film 2009
“Using narrative minimalism (a general feature of the medium-length film) Turk manages to express quite a great deal of content.” Peter Kolšek, Delo
“Turk’s film remains sworn to the visual nature of film language, the black-and-white aesthetics of routine human gestures, silent shots and longing, lonely gazes as well as genuinely acted out and originally directed romantic encounters.” Katja Čičigoj, Ekran
