A performance piece filmed. On a wooden floor a volleyball rolls to a stop. A pair of legs march towards the ball stopping just behind the resting sphere. Repeat for ten minutes.
Switching between similar low angle camera shots that cut off everything above the knees, the film does contain multiple shots. That does not stop the movie from feeling like a performance on a stage. The limited viewing area is a mechanism of the movie camera, but the idea behind the film is something better left to a performance space. With the ball’s movement dictating the choreography of the legs an element of chance enters the picture, but parameters of the film frame confine the movement and reduce the film to an exaggerated exercise.
That there is more life in the movement of the volleyball than the prescribed movement of the performer’s legs is of some interested, but the interest is mild and fleeting at best.
