1991, 12:09 minutes, colour, French


Without being aware that he is doing so, Silvio steals a turkey from a supermarket, much to the dismay of his wife. His only clear memory being one of a holiday weekend in the fifties, Silvio is absorbed by passing faces and oblivious to the drama unfolding around him. The videomakers make effective and intense use of close-ups to recreate the peculiar atmosphere particular to shopping malls - muzak and all.

Sans même s'en rendre compte, Silvio vole une dinde dans un supermarché, au grand désarroi de son épouse. Son seul souvenir précis étant celui d'une fin de semaine de congé durant les années cinquante, Silvio est absorbé par des visions de visages passagers et totalement inconscient de ce qui se passe autour de lui. Les vidéastes utilisent, avec une grande efficacité, des gros plans pour recréer l'atmosphère étrange des centres commerciaux ... musique ridicule et tout le reste.
