Arnold´s original material is a piece of “found-footage” from the 50ies. 18 seconds long and very typical for the period. A quiet take: a living room, a woman in an arm-chair. Her husband opens the door, kisses her, then moves out of the picture accompanied by a disturbing pan, his wife follows him. In Arnold´s film the sequence takes 16 minutes. Frame by frame, it becomes an exiting tango of movements. But “Pièce Touchée” is more than just a matter of forms. The reflections, distortions and delays it displays challenge Hollywood´s stable system of space and time. (Alexander Horwath)
