Polizeibericht Überfall (original title)

The film centers on the struggles of a German citizen who happens upon a counterfeit coin lying in a gutter. The opening sequence of the movie gives a brief glimpse into the notion that the coin might be “cursed,” as another passerby is struck down by a car while reaching for the coin in the middle of the road. Although the finder of the coin is at first glad, he soon regrets ever having picked it up.

Impatience 1928

impatience-767694828-large

An introductory title informs the spectator that the film will be composed of four series of images, ‘the motorbike, the woman, the mountain and abstract blocks’, elements which serve as the starting point for Dekeukeleire to construct his film according to very precise parameters. The rhythm is given by a mathematical fragmentation of the film’s running time, divided up into temporal segments where the four repertories of images succeed each other in every possible combination with no respect for either melodic line or dramatic tension.

Director: Charles Dekeukeleire
Writer: Charles Dekeukeleire
