Ulrike Solbrig, Germany, 2003, 52 min.
A mute toned tapestry of seduction and attention. A dog, from a living room floor,
looks up at a television that stands atop a home entertainment center a foot or so above
The James Bond movie, "Goldfinger", dubbed in German, plays on the screen. The dog,
in continual engagement with the unfolding dramatic action, paces to and fro over the carpeted
floor with a plant bedecked windowsill for backdrop. As the screen tension increases the dog
reacts appropriately, bites at its rubber toy, moves close to the screen, totally entranced.
When action subsides, it moves back to a couch, lying down but still watching from afar.
A climax is reached as Bond defuses a bomb's timing device, which the dog nervously observes
with an ever-closer proximity to the screen. It ends with the dog watching with interest as the credits roll by.
