The constant movement of the wheels, threads, sprockets, feet and hands suggests restlessness, and this is paralleled by the soundtrack. The unknown woman could be Gretchen from Faust, hopelessly in love or Ariadne who gave Theseus the thread to find his way out of labyrinth or perhaps she is one of the Fates, weaving destiny… Enlarged from super8 to 35mm, the film is very grainy, in itself an homage to the medium of film which is also emphasised by the depiction of all kinds of turning machines, both in image and sound.
