Guillermo Cervantes Luro,
María Rosa Gallo,
Inside a warehouse, a precarious 70-100 feet long structure has been constructed using various items. When this is set in motion, a chain reaction ensues. Fire, water, law of gravity as well as chemistry determine the life-cycle of objects - of things. It brings about a story concerning cause and effect, mechanism and art, improbability and precision.Written by
Every time I see this movie... I think to myself "why didn't I think of that?" It seems so easy, yet it's so complex. The rolling of tires uphill, the skyrocket speedboat, and the untwisting of plastic bags. It is crazy how interesting boring everyday objects become when they're put into a sequence that actually accomplishes... nothing! This is a wonderful film about NOTHING. It's all a setup to do NOTHING... but I see it as a metaphor for life sometimes... I go to work day in and day out and perform some meaningless tasks that relate to other people's meaningless tasks over and over again to do what? NOTHING. To just come back the next day and do it all over again. Maybe that's why I like this movie so much... I'm just another trash bag in a building unwinding over and over and over and over.....
