Recommend this film

SIGNERS KOFFER is a kind of road movie across Europe. From the Swiss Alps to Eastern Poland, from Stromboli to Iceland. Always following the scenery's magically charged contours. Immersing yourself, letting yourself be infected, then travelling on. Roman Signer determines the route that we are moving on and the film improvises along the way.
Being on the road also means tracking down the right places. Signer brings them alive using his own personal instruments, brilliantly simple operations full of subtle humour. «Simple» poems being transmitted into space with INSTRUMENTS as gunpowder, fuse, rubber boots, balloons, stool, small table ... and a three wheeled Plaggio.
SIGNERS KOFFER is also a journey through the state of mind. A tightrope walk between fun and melancholy. Mental danger, too, becomes the stimulus of the senses. Sudden crashes, abrupt changes of mood determine the rhythm and atmosphere of this cinematic journey.

«In balance between Schalk and melancholy... On the way with the artist Roman Signer - an attempt at the ideal cruising speed.»

«I have a sensitive hearing - I am almost ashamed for the noise which an explosion causes.»
Roman Signer
