Subterranean Love, directed by Robert Haufrecht

Synopsis: Two lonely people, the woman with her girlfriend, the man alone, are out in the Village, same street but separate locations, end up on the same subway platform. There’s an old Eastern European woman playing haunting accordion music (she is a muse of sorts and the music resides through most of the film). They get on the same subway car and surreptitiously check each other out and go into their own romantic fantasies, never speaking and finally she leaves, both of them still alone.
