Perfect work of modern visual slapstick
8 October 2001 | by (Tavier, Belgium) – See all my reviews

When I saw this film, I could not imagine how much it would respond to my cinematographic hunger. It is original, funny, inventive (it HAS to be: there are no dialogues at all), moving and perfectly acted. Everything I was expecting from cinema, this movie gave it to me. It is a real lesson of cinematic language. If you're nostalgic of Buster Keaton's and Chaplin's work, try to check this one out. One of my personal favorite.
