In Hamburg, in stop action, we watch a motodrom being assembled. Spectators ring the cylindrical structure from above. Three drivers enter; there are four motorcycles and one race car. Sometimes one driver speeds around the motodrom's walls parallel to the ground, coming close to the top, scaring the spectators. Sometime three cyclists trail each other. Sometimes it's the race car, with a driver and another stuntman standing above him. One driver, Jagath, rides with his hands not touching the handles, then he sits and stands astride his bike, again with no hands. The drivers are impassive. The sounds are those of the bikes and of applause. No one speaks. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

No real story--just amazingly cool visuals!
18 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The setting for the film is a small indoor motodrome that is built almost like half a giant barrel. Motorcyles and even a car begin around the track and they spin at an incredible rate--moving up the side of the barrel as the audience looks down into this amazing spectacle. For those who know what a Rotor is from an amusement park--it is very reminiscent of that.

This is a rather hypnotic and interesting short film. While I can't give it a really high score because there really isn't much to the film (no dialog and no plot). However, it was made very artistically in black and white and looks more like a piece of art than a "film". The movement, the shadows and the look--it's truly fascinating and unique.
