Storyline

Homage to a person who claps the slate before each take of a film. We see the hands of a film editor cutting away the initial frame of strips of film; then we see a montage of these outtakes: a woman with long black hair claps the slate board at the start of take after take. She is Lucy, she calls the slate "tsak tsak." We hear Lucy's clap at least 55 times for the film "Tuvalu" (1999). Rolling credits at the end tell us of her career: for more than 30 years, 56 feature films, 3 documentaries, two series, 7200 claps of the slate for each film, nearly half a million claps, and over 382 hours of her image on film - without appearing in a single motion picture, until now.

Worth watching for a quick and thoughtful laugh
22 December 2004 | by Bungle-9See all my reviews

First off, I thought it was an interesting idea to make a film (albeit a short one) out of the little bits that aren't put in a finished film. I wouldn't say that this is the most provocative film in the world, but it is interesting nonetheless. What interests me most is the point they make - that this clacker board has appeared in reams and reams of celluloid strips, but has never actually been in a finished film.

It's hard to write a 10 line comment on a film that is barely a minute or so long, but my final view on this is that it has little to merit itself other than what I mentioned before, yet it remains a harmless little entity - like Lucy.
