BERLIN, JUNE 15-25, 2000
Donald Duck trifft den andalusischen Hund. Wie im Comic wird das Seelenleben des Protagonisten dieses absurden Alltagsdramas im körperlichen Zustand des Protagonisten gespiegelt. Und die Welt des norwegischen Filmemachers Gunnar Knutsen scheint sich den Gesetzen der Logik zu entziehen. Seine Figur ist heute ein wenig überfordert: Wer bin ich? scheinen seine Blicke zu fragen. Ein Mensch oder ein Fußball? Und wenn ich ein Fußball bin, was haben dann diese Scherben unter dem Fenster zu bedeuten? Oder der Mann mit den Krücken? Alles nur ein Unfall? Warum das alles? Und wo bin ich überhaupt? Hier auf dem Sofa oder da unten auf der Strasse? Aber wenn ich hier in der Wohnung bin, wer klingelt dann dauernd draußen an der Tür? Bei so viel Verwirrung hilft nur eine herzliche Portion Selbstironie. Dabei ist alles ganz harmlos. – Fünf Minuten Slapstick über das Innenleben eines ganz normal verrückten Mannes.
