"Adebar" is a short film from 1957 that was made by the then still very young Austrian director Peter Kubelka. And I must say I am generally not too big on him and this one here does not change my opinion for the better. It was almost painful to listen to, so luckily it was over quickly, and it was not more interesting to watch either. I am a bit baffled that this work is semi-famous and considered one of Kubelka's best. I cannot agree with that at all. The constant movements and use of light and dark in here left little impression and as a whole this felt like style over substance for me. I do not recommend the watch. Thumbs down.
