Short films are to cinema what poems are to literature, it's the art of communicating something heavier than life itself in a few verses or images. Even with his early work Goddard already seemed to understand this. Every movement, shot, facial expression, word in this film combine with eloquence through the musical score to transmit to us with enviable precision something that is fundamentally inexpressible. This is cinema as art in its purest form.
