The protagonist of this quiet picture is the director’s 52-year-old brother Ján Kollár, who learns that he needs to undergo a hazardous procedure with only a 50-50 chance of surviving. Ján takes his bike and a minimum of equipment and sets out on perhaps the last journey he’ll ever take when he can essentially do everything exactly the way he wants. The only limitation is the day set for his operation – October 5th. With its refined imaging, the visually precise movie bears witness to the physical and spiritual wanderings of a man in a crucial life situation. Employing sensitivity without pathos, the director records Ján’s struggle against fear and his sincere effort to stand face-to-face with his circumstances and find reconciliation. Ján commits his thoughts and feelings to a journal, excerpts of which serve as a formal element in this contemplative, powerful film.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
