Polanski: Ssaki (1962)

Ssaki (Mammals), made in 1962, the last short of Polanski. Opinions totally diverge. For Johan Jansens, this is the genius of Polanski (the minimal set: two colors, two men, no speech, just music). For Nora Nettlerash, there is presumably some kind of metaphor going on, but there is no point in looking for it. I wouldn't look here for a metaphor, though. The word should be: minimal. That's it: minimal here means even no idea. Is it genial or it sucks? Who cares? It's just visual poetry, playing on the white.
