Pinball Cha Cha

Switzerland, 1985 (MIFF 1986, Video Visions - Desire)

Director: Yello

It is more related to the art of painting than to the movie, and shall develop itself into the tradition of Ferdinand Leger and into its own form of art, even though the pressure to sell music often is that high, that the most banal fantasies are being used.
