An artist conceives of “The Idea,” taking the form of a naked muse that runs amok, creating mayhem and disorder wherever she lingers in her furious foray through a world of men.
In between his collaborations with renowned animator Lotte Reiniger, director Berthold Bartosch crafted this astutely layered, pioneering short. Based on a wordless novel, and featuring possibly the first electronic music score ever, The Idea is a daring example of anti-establishment storytelling.
