worth the try
19 October 2006 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

if you notice that this film will be projected near you, check it out.

is really hard to comment or explain this experiment. i think it was a extraordinary exercise for my mind and for everyone's mind in the cinema. thats why i strongly recommend to watch this one. and please watch it in a big screen with a lot of people. everyone will think that there are some problems with the projector or player but don't worry because this film is "like that".

i saw this film alongside 2 documentary shortcuts: "Sur le passage de quelques personnes à travers une assez courte unité de temps" and "Critique de la séparation".
