Commentaire acerbe sur l'ère de l'homme dominé par la machine: l'homme blasé, désintéressé de tout; l'homme qui n'attend plus que sa chance de tirer son numéro du lot. Le film est une succession de perspectives décousues sur une foule en mouvement.

Ce film fait partie du Programme anglais de l'ONF. Il n'existe pas de version française du film, mais vu l'importance de son cinéaste, Arthur Lipsett, et la nature expérimentale et décousue du film, nous avons pris la liberté de le rendre disponible quand même sur ONF.ca.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised
