Storyline

With the feel of experimental film, Gitai mixes storytelling, readers' theater, cityscapes (usually seen from moving trains), and desolate landscapes to mediate on the act of creation. What if a golem were fashioned out of dirt, much like Adam, and came to life? The film imagines it, in the desert and in Moscow. Interspersed are stories of a 14th-century Tuscan artist's creation of a tower that plays music when the wind blows, of a film director, and of Jeremiah and Sirat. In what ways is making a movie like creating a golem? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Layered, but too self-indulgent
14 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Golem tale has much potential and Gitai tries to mine it for this obscure film, but all the layerings and actual overlays -- a technique I think he abuses -- only come off as pretentious and self-indulgent. Not that I expected a conventional film or even an edifying one, but even the mood and tempo didn't add up to much for me. It came across more as a series of experimental vignettes not weave together into a film. It felt more like I was watching a film school project than the work of a great director. Some of the scenes were even annoying. I couldn't wait until it was over.
