Not good
13 May 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

I read that this short film was initially intended to be a beer commercial, but it looks like Austrian experimental filmmaker Peter Kubelka had something else in mind. It occasionally looks a bit like Brakhage, but I am not a fan of him either, so it should not come as a surprise that this 90-second film here is another disappointment from the director in my opinion. I cannot even forgive him because he was still really young when he made this. I have seen some other stuff from him and it is equally weak. All in all, I definitely did not enjoy the watch. the visual side was better than the audible, but both was simply not good enough for me to say I saw a creative approach in here. Thumbs down. Watch something else instead.
