Storyline

A gang in a Volvo have staked out a flat; when its occupants leave to walk their dog, the six break into the place. One keeps his eyes on a stopwatch: they have only ten minutes before the couple returns. Instead of stealing things, the gang goes from room to room making fascinating percussive music with found objects: first in the kitchen, then the bedroom, the bathroom, and the salon. Cabinet doors, pot lids, light switches, a pill dispenser, a lamp, books, and a vacuum cleaner hose all add to the suite in four movements. The drummers keep the first three rooms tidy, but what will the flat's occupants make of the hurricane that hits the living room? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Endless range of percussion instruments
3 March 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This short film could have been titled "I got rhythm" for that indeed is what it is all about. Our homes as this film shows are filled to the brim with uncoordinated sounds e.g. the flapping of a blind, the clicking of a mouse trap, the rattle of coins in a money box. There is no end to it. My question is: When does sound become noise and when does noise become music? It's all to do with rhythm, and this film has it!

The six intruders in this apartment have lots of fun (despite their dead pan faces) with all manner of every day objects as they work together in a regular beat. I found myself totally involved nodding my head in time and tapping out the rhythm with my feet...waiting expectantly for the next object to come alive.

Although the percussion instruments kept up a regular beat, the orchestration of the sounds varied from ordinary to excellent. It is a fun film filled with ingenious ideas. It has no serious intent. Just sit back and enjoy the rhythm.
