2015–2017: Pictures of friends, moments of tenderness, glances of loneliness ... Friends pass by like in silent movie times, close, even bigger than life, but the sound of silence creates a distance, one might hear Art Garfunkel shout: Silence like a cancer grows. As a crucial sign the hourglass repeatedly appears. Time is fading and memories, too. Vom Gröller shows a very private film with a twinkle in the eye. Optical brackets of a “New York Times”-film critic hold the film together: Half-awake he declares his admiration for Tarkowski and Kieslowski and apologizes for having fallen asleep watching Friedl’s film. Self-irony at its best. (Otto Reiter)

In the presence of Friedl vom Gröller.
