Peter Braunstein writes "To understand a Nokia film, it's first necessary to unearth the very singular psychic landscape produced by cell phones: the sense that one's personal narrative is no longer enclosed, but rather is always intermingled and intercut with other people's. The net effect is an enhanced sense of simultaneity, synergy, interconnectedness between people, while at the a same time a displacement of self, a disembodied feeling, a sense of being uprooted from any distinct physical domain."
