This might have made an intriguing short subject because there probably is a good 20 minute movie in there. However, the long, looooong empty shots of fields and trains (God, the trains!) didn't convey anything to me and my friend but sheer boredom. We fast-forwarded through the movie and ended up laughing each time yet another train appeared. Could have called it Trainspotting if that name hadn't already been taken. At any rate, I'm certainly glad I wasn't trapped in a theatre with this movie. I would have been hollering out to the projectionist, "Can you fast-forward to the next scene that actually has people and dialog in it, where something HAPPENS, please?"
