Storyline

A glass in free fall. Have you ever thought if it is possible to calculate into how many pieces it can break into? After numerous experiments, a team of researchers succeeds in doing just this apparently impossible task. Attracted to their experiment, a mysterious professor invites the scientists in his isolated mansion to know more about their studies. However, when they arrive, they are not greeted by their host but they are faced with a strange model of the mansion, in which some absolutely normal but incredible actions are acted. The researchers will soon understand to be involved in a new experiment in which they'll have to play a very different role than usual: that of the glass in free fall.

Atmospheric, Stylishly Italian
21 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

A group of researchers have developed a system that enables them to calculate seemingly random events, i.e., how many pieces a glass will shatter into when dropped from a table to the floor. Their studies attract the attention of a mysterious Professor, who invites them to his very remote house on top of a very steep rock in the middle of the ocean. But when they arrive, the Professor is not there, and instead he invites them to take part in an experiment of his devising. All they have to do is survive until dawn…. This is a first feature from writer/director/actor Giordano Giulivi, and it's absolutely wonderful. Montreal's FantAsia Festival 2017 was privileged to have the world premiere, complete with director and others involved at the screening; he mentioned that it took his filmmaking team 7 ½ years to make this film and it's easy to see why, given the really beautiful look of the (black and white) film, its atmospheric qualities and it's combination of incredibly detailed mechanistic movement via cogs and wheels along with the occasional pause for the actors to have a philosophical discussion about the meaning of life. Very Italian, very wonderful!
