Year: 1987



A perfect Pair is distinguished first and foremost by the subtle irony and self-irony that has always characterised the works of VALIE EXPORT. The protagonists seem almost like caricatures, but, in fact, they fit well into a context in which advertising and the exhortation to consumerism play a central role.


Everything is floating in a timeless dimension in Vergiss Sneider!, Götz Spielmann’s medium-length graduation film. And next to a dark humour in the background, next to a subtle as well as vibrant eroticism, next to characters whose obsessions are taken to the extreme, we see a theatrical mise-en-scène that clearly refers to the Theatre of the Absurd, without forgetting Roman Polanski himself or even the science fiction films of the glorious Hollywood of the 1950s and 1960s.
