Musical film. Woman at the piano. She plays. The images, chosen to illustrate the music, follow its rhythm. Water, bubbling (with discreet use of movement in reverse), clouds, the pianist's face. Calm. A boat against the light. Dusk. Folding waves. Face. Ripples. Dead leaves blown away by the wind. Moon passing between clouds. Scintillations, waterfalls, eddies, smoke. Idealization of nature by translating music into terms of idealized nature.
Music by Robert Schumann.
