Two brothers in surreal rivalry from the crib onward.
This short film is shot entirely on a white stage - cyclorama - with minimal set decoration giving the film the feel of a surrealist dream or nightmare. One is reminded of the herding scene from THX 1138, or Joe Sedelmaier short films. The building of tension between the brothers intertwines with strange distortions of everyday life- lessons, such as elbowing aside school. The festive soundtrack helps keep this purposefully of-balance movie moving smoothly along. A fine offering from the Zageb Film studios, who would later turn heavily to animation.
