  • Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film Du Bruit

    Graduation work from La Fémis: Directly into my list of perfect shorts. It is a brilliant idea, executed with brilliant aptitude: in a completely silent cafe, a man tells another to listen to the noise: what follows is minutes of images of mouths, dishes, talking, in complete silence, until panic sets in. Mr. Van Der Keuken went on to make many documentaries. RIP. ||| IndieLisboa16
