Storyline

Oscillating hands each hold a pen; a man made of wire has a malevolent look and an oscillating eye as he pokes at a bump on his forehead. Op-art stripes are in the fabric. Lines become jumbles that become balls that oscillate, bounce, or stay suspended in air. In a dark apartment, a man lies in bed, a forlorn woman stands nearby rubbing first her forehead then her chest; a fan whirs between them. On either side of their apartment are well-lit chambers with stairs and forms at right angles bathed in light. Briefly a human moves onto the set to place a ball. The camera moves among these figures and landscapes; mournful violin music, sometimes staccato, plays. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Based on an ingenious irony
21 April 1999 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This gem is based on an ingenious irony: it is a puppet film, but what is the star? The one thing you are never supposed to see in puppet animation - Strings! There is a bouncing ball of string; the walls are lined with strings; the camera moves as if pulled by strings; and guess what instruments are on the soundtrack?
