THE FINAL TOUCH
dir Pierre Yves Clouin • 01/France 2m
There's only ambient sound--and very little of that even--in this single shot in which a camera roams around a wall and then stops at a small mirror in which we can see the back of a man who's wearing only a T-shirt. Eventually we realise he's wanking. Absurd and pointless. 16.Apr.02 llgff
MON LAPIN BLEU [My Blue Rabbit]
dir Pierre Yves Clouin • 00/France 1m
Erm, like PY Clouin's other short here (The Final Touch), this is an absurd silent snippet. But unlike that other one, this is actually oddly funny as it features a naked man wrestling sexually with a big, blue stuffed bunny rabbit ... in front of a Christmas tree! Makes you worry. Hmmm. 16.Apr.02 llgff
