A droll, minor film, pleasant to watch, albeit somewhat forgettable. In mock-doc style we meet the wacky members of an Italian orchestra rehearsing in a medieval abbey, under the baton of a strict German conductor. Each section has their own philosophy (funniest: the bassoon player, questioning God why he has been condemned to express himself artistically with a ridiculous farting sound) and all are understandably Fellini-esque. The union representative is on hand and sparks fly against the stern German. Make political allegories if you must – as the last 10 minutes of this short feature explode into surrealism and the walls come tumbling down. Recommended.
