31 May 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful little modern silent film -- in the sense that it tells its story without the use of dialogue or even titles -- of a competition in basketball between two men -- each playing at a different time.

It's the jock against the brainbox and little more than an anecdote, but very natural and surprising in its humor. There is also a nice little musical score, whimsical in its nature, the theme played on the clarinet -- the woodwinds tending, as they do, to being the clowns of the orchestra. It will only take a couple of minutes of your time and will reward you immensely.
