Fine | Pryntyl

FineThe sound of one hand clapping may still be a question up for debate, but in Fine, the story of a soldier’s birth, life and death, Italian filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi has closed the book on what you get when one hand acts. An inventively entertain short is the answer.

Although not strictly solo hand acting this time, (there are a few supporting players/props) I figured you’d like to see more of Villoresi’s inventive filmmaking at work. This time his whimsical style provides the perfect accompaniment for Vinicio Capossela’s Pryntyl.
