Peter Wächtler’s work undermines the animated cartoon genre as much as it uses it, and his films often tell the story of a character in his private life. Loops and repetitive elements abound in his work and act as acritique of the amount of checking and monitoring in the world. Here Wächtler tells the story of two men, one of whom is complaining about being made the scapegoat of a group. The intended exaggeration and deadpan humour help create an uncomfortable tension between the spectators’ distance from the scene and their identification with the characters. Wächtler’swork makes much of the traditions and techniques of classical narratives. They appear as a means of rationalising the world and making sense of it.
