Review

In 1907, Dr. Plonk, a scientist and inventor, travels to 2007 and collects evidence to prove his hypothesis that the earth will end after 100 years. The story of this film is simple, but the way the story is developed is unusual. Rolf de Heer, the director, made it a silent movie. It expresses the feeling of classic silent movies through use of a hand-cranked camera, with slightly unnatural movement of the characters. Dr. Plonk´s travels to the future remind us of Bustier Keaton and Charles Chaplin´s slapstick comedy. The story and humorous situations are quite enjoyable. In the film, when Dr. Plonk travels to the future, where we have high-tech films in color with sound, but the audience goes to the past through this movie.
