short but inspiring
18 December 2009 | by mrdonleoneSee all my reviews

Agnes Varda, someone I really adore, she's so stylistic and esthetically correct. this is about architecture. alright, maybe this sounds like boring, but she explains a lot about architecture that's very interesting. it made me reflect on Tarkovsky's Andreij Roubljov. the film makes us think about architecture, sex and the couple on the soundtrack, talking about things as love and other nice experiences like poetry. and all this in less than six minutes! it's really inspiring for beginning or elder movie freaks like me. the things we learn about architecture, were unknown to me: everything is about love. that's strange, but it is. at least, that's what I intended to be the message of this experimental short film.
