Alexandra Hetmerova "Swimming Pool" (2010)

There's a great joke in today's animation. The guy with the apartment overlooking the swimming pool is sneaking through the gardens for a secret, nocturnal splash when a screeching bird betrays his presence. Only a bribe of banknotes silences the bird which promptly uses them as bedding. Alexandra Hetmerova's utterly charming piece, Swimming Pool, has the swimmer meet up with a female and together indulge in an impromptu bit of synchronised swimming to Strauss. There's a surprise ending that I never guessed at but nothing in this warm romance is unseemly. Except the director's understandable reluctance to animate legs: they are a pain. Alexandra has real talent. Her drawing is at once simple and sophisticated, and the animation has a fizz about it, full of incident and wit. She made the film whilst working towards her MA at FAMU, the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. She is currently working on her second film. I notice also that she had an internship in 2009 at the Estonian Academy Of Art in Tallinn  working with Priit Pärn and Ülo Pikkov. She must have learnt a lot. I may too. I'm going there in July but not to study, sadly.
