A Movement in C Minor
12 November 2009 | by ( – See all my reviews

This pointless but energetic little film from Pathe won't win any awards for plot, but it's brief running time means it's a minor diversion that doesn't outstay its welcome. A down-at-heel cellist takes a seat in the middle of a provincial street and begins playing his instrument, much to the annoyance of the residents who begin throwing things out of their windows at him. At one point the film cuts away from the musician to show a group of people passing items up the stairs to throw at him (music obviously has powers to bring a neighbourhood together - especially if it's played badly). Personally, I'd have gone out onto the street and swiped his bow...
