The film welcomes us with an image of an “ideal place”: a toy world built by a child. But the idyllic scene is a question of perspective. The city is lifeless, the figures frozen. Without the animating human hands, everything is dead. The scenes in Friedl vom Gröller’s film are dreamlike: oppressive and childlike, full of erotic symbols and surreal moments. (Judith Zdesar)
