A terrible never ending dream...
1 March 2007 | by pawasbishtSee all my reviews

Great cinematic exposition. Without a single word being spoken by the main protagonists- a gripping circular narrative unfolds. A black jazz musician, a boy with a white rabbit, a girl in a white frock, an empty construction site-the elements seem straight out of a dream until midway they all fall into place and you anticipate a terrible discovery. A great ending that will compel you to have a re-look at the beginning. Where did we start from? Van Der Linden tricks us into his dream. And he never lets go. Rendered to a beautiful musical track mixing location sound elements-with jazz improvisations this short masterpiece is a must see. Discovered it as a washed out blurry VHS at my film school. But it only added to the power of the dream.
