An off-screen narrator remembers a time he was five years old, walking to school in a heavy rain, wearing a yellow slicker and cap. He relates to us that a boy he’d never seen before ran up to him and said that it was raining worms.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Haiku-filmkunst, en scene fra livet som åpner opp et mysterium til noe annet, dypere, ikke definert, i brytningspunktet mellom minne og myte. Regnets melankoli, barnesinnets evne til undring, dette religiøse sinnelaget - ufordervet av religion, med en instinktiv tilknytning til poesien bakenfor hverdagen. En vakker impresjon.
This probably is the sort of film where the highly intelectuals see probably a lot of metaphors and stuff. for me was like - again??? And there are 10 films more to come. The only good one was Human Remains.
1 star for the boy, 1/2 for the worm and 1/2 for the schoolbag.
I have to say every next Jay Rosenblatt's film I watch here on Mubi feels like a downward-spiral. At least they are usually short, but being a short film doesn't make it avant-garde - these films take risks and explore new ways of expression, while this is just a plain (and short) turd. Probably just the text alone or the picture without narration would have been more effective and open a door to use imagination.
Kind of liked this. Two minutes filled with simplicity and a story that seemed to be taken out of a children’s book; this been a positive thing to say.
We often are too squared as a species.
It was as long as it needed to be. 3 Stars because there has been other movies in Mubi which have marked me by tons more.
