Storyline

A young man strolls through a city. He walks under a bridge toward a rail yard. A young woman sees him and walks beside him. They cross the tracks and walk into the countryside. They stop at a river. They hold hands. It starts to rain; it's a downpour. They seek shelter in an abandoned shack. They kiss, long and hard. It stops raining; they leave together but seem alone. They part at the railroad tracks. She watches him go, but he doesn't look back. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Small Neo-Realist World
12 September 2007 | by p_radulescuSee all my reviews

For Janice Hubka it was the only cinematic experience. She would not play anymore. Walter Newcomb would play in other three or four movies of Brakhage, then he would give up, too. Here he's trying to be a bit of James Dean.

James Tenney scored the movie. Here his music has the delicacy of Erik Satie. A bit later Tenney would score Desistfilm, taking a definite harsh approach.

So, the first movie of Brakhage... About four hundred would follow.

There is a story here, but it's only the pretext. The movie builds a small Neo-Realist world and plays a little bit inside. That's all. Brakhage was 19 years old. Tenney was 18. It was 1952.
