A fine short film with ambigous humor. I like the simplicity of the concept and the surprises Borowczyk gains from making variations of his basic picture. The use of sound and (also simplistic) music is very good.
This short and meaningful film is very humorous and the viewer is welcome to take each a-z scene at face value or ponder a deeper meaning. In each separate vignette the main character (line drawing) demonstrates the meaning of a word for the relevant letter. Perfectly matched music and sound effects enhance the viewing experience. Though now 50 years old the art on display feels contemporary. Quite delightful.
Struck me as a trifle droll by Borowczeyk's standards; but then again, one shouldn't go to Surrealist art to be amused, even though it is often (incidentally?) amusing. The eye, the suicide and the hanging nose game made me laugh.
