This film evokes memories of literature classes – but it’s unlikely that there was ever such a dynamic recital of Goethe’s ballad. And completely without words, too! As usual and with his customary precision, Schwizgebel makes gaudy paintings melt into each other or positions a split screen to show the different protagonists’ perspectives. The father’s ride with the sick child to the music of Schubert and Liszt alone is a feast for the eyes!

A gripping experimental animadoc film about a life ruled by “Zoloft”, a drug prescribed against depression and anxiety disorders. The whispered diary circles around negative images that one is not allowed to imagine. A vicious circle of obsessions that are to be driven out by obsessions … And yet we also get to see some beautiful archetypal images of nature jumping forward and backward – as if they were preparing to attempt the final yes.

The desolation of the emptiness of a white page is filled by the illustrated pandemonium of a meaningless journey into nothingness. This animated loop, consisting of only 16 frames, is being drawn over and over again. Combined with a naive soundtrack it forges a rousing and absurd two minute pseudo road movie.
