Ulrich and Kassian Troyer's road movie "Open" appears to be beyond time and space and yet seems to embody all time and all places. The minimalistic animation combines many opposites: the individuality of the sensation of driving and the anonymity of a landscape coincide on one hand with unlimited freedom and on the other with barriers. The apparent contradiction, which derives from an ephemeral changeability and at the same time from a continuity, finds its analogy in the sound, which emphasizes the narrative nature of the animation. The road movie itself becomes a binding element since it brings together the various locations of the two brothers by means of its conception and implementation. The conversations, which took place between Berlin and Vienna, evoked references to the world of music and films which sketch out the conception and the ensuing dialogues.
