10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You



Copy Shop

DIR: Virgil Widrich
2001 / Austria / 12 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

The first few scenes are sufficient for Widrich to show his hero's growing confusion, and to gradually deepen the bewilderment felt by his audience. By skillfully altering certain shots-such as when an objective shot suddenly moves into a subjective point-of-view-and driving a fable into a state of paranoia, he blurs conventional narrative techniques and modes of identification.

Grainy black-and-white images and the soundtrack, which comprises solely music and sound effects, give Copy Shop a grotesque flavor, something of a pastiche of a Kafkaesque scenario in which the disappearance of all originality thanks to the various media is announced with a hint of irony. The film reflects this from the other direction by starting with the production process: originally shot on videotape, the images were printed out on a computer and then shot again with an animation camera.
