Form, form, form, form..., 29 January 2001
Author: Mauricio Bussab (mauricio-19) from Sao Paulo, Brazil

I respect the challenge that this movie presented. Four cameras running in real time, with synchronized events? Wow. But without an engaging story the challenge is equivalent to building a replica of the Empire State Building out of matches. Impressive but pointless.

If you are a movie student it is worth seeing. Maybe you can turn this great idea into a real movie.
