Storyline

Ryan struggles to find meaning in his provisional existence, exploring sex and death and the idea of 'becoming something.' This surreal film, enveloped in a classical string quartet piece, is a rumination on death, time, and the nature of existence. It posits the idea of a human life as a static, four-dimensional entity that exists at a specific moment in time and cannot be said to truly begin or end. Written by Anonymous

Short and strange with video art and strong cuts
15 December 2015 | by Tamas-Banki-DrLinkedinSee all my reviews

I'm not a reviewer, but this short movie was one, I wanted to hit the keyboard for. Some 15 years ago I had a chance to work with Bela Tarr, and I have learned the need of strength in the cuts. Bela loved long shuts, while Michael likes a little longer then very short, and this gave his short film the strength.

The Summary tells my feelings: "Short and strange with video art and strong cuts"

So what I've really meant:

Short: You'll fell the need to watch it longer

Strange: Loved the depression and the strange questions (eg.: happy at the funeral)

Video art: The fades, the strings, the shocks...

Strong cuts: Both the director and the editor knew exactly where and when to cut. Nice and strong cuts, with great rhythm.
