An animation that plays with the elements of the eclipse (light and shadow) and the poetics of waiting for a barber.
The choice of Blixa Bargeld, founder of Einstürzende Neubauten and one of Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds, for the film’s narration and Teho Teardo, Italian musician and collaborator of Lydia Lunch, Cop Shoot Cop and Blixa himself, for the music, says a lot about the universe of Rita Cruchinho Neves’ new film. A gothic, funereal tale, inspired by the association between the brush of a barber and a painter, in blood red. An irreprehensible animation with a blade-proof solidity, in a film full of sonic and visual textures in which Blixa, Teho and Rita form the holy trinity. (Carlos Ramos)
