A dark and terrifying vision of human nature.  A man and a woman succumb to hunger, hatred, and madness.  Both the characters are old, both miserable.  They function as the dark, terrible shadows of what constitutes a human being.  The absurdity of their situation is unsettling in that it is not absurd at all.  We may all inhabit the Hell in which they live; and we may all contain the Hellish demons, which inhabit them. The characters eat up the scenery.  That is to say, the world in which they live is as human as they themselves are human.  All is image, and operate merely as ghosts in the underworld. The black and white film fuses their roles as images: shadows and light.
