Personal Slideshow Film
23 October 2003 | by (Chiba City, Japan) – See all my reviews

Personal "slideshow" album from the director's journey in Eastern Europe and Russia. Well executed; pictures are precisely framed by fixed camera with occasional dolly. (There is only one shot with panning, the shot in a big station) Because nothing happens in a landscape sequence during two hours, the piece is more suitable to be viewed in a gallery or in a public place than in a theater. Conceptually, it is reminiscent of Erik Satie's Furniture Music.
