A monstrous machinery of a sinister kind.
15 February 2018 | by hugodinkumSee all my reviews

"Train" has no actors. The lead character in this experimental short is the train itself. The train and its evil parts. Actually their shadows to be exact. Creatively filmed in black & white and edited with the cutting edge techniques, it's reminiscent of the early French and German avant-garde films of the 1920's. However, its strength in my opinion, comes from its modern industrial soundtrack. It's composed with a surgical precision, emphasizing every tiny detail. All the rusty squeaking, clicking, honking and everything else you could possibly imagine.

As the train gets more and more weird and crazy, grinding its strange, metallic fangs, fractured sections and blinding the viewer with the dazzling flickering, everything turns into a twisted collage of a mechanical mayhem.

The author of this film Arthur Mountaniol, who also produced its soundtrack, creates a rather unique 3 minute trip out of a very common object which in this case presents itself as some monstrous machinery of a sinister kind.
