What would happen if the art of making music were a run of the mill job? Right. An Italian psychological experiment that turns, at times, into a performance: Stick 60 artists in work overalls, and stick ‘em on an assembly line. Pure realism, with supervisors, hitches and bitchin’, and the “workers” pondering their predicament.

 

What would happen if the art of making music were a run of the mill job? No, for real. In five-year plan mode: all the musicians on the block, clocking in with no freedom of movement (and a pitiful hourly rate). This is basically what's cooking here. Unitá di Produzione Musicale is an Italian psychological experiment, which at times hinges on performance: We stick 60 artists in overalls and put them on an assembly line. But not for kicks. The supervisors are strict, the signs spell it out: "Talking prohibited", and our artists find themselves in a shocking situation: signing in, getting a bollocking, plotting with other "workers" (right at the start of the film, two of the volunteers are already scheming to "break the rules") This is pure realism, with bosses, downtime, and the rheumatic tick-tock of the hours passing in a factory. They all write: some scribble musical notes, others doodle a Christmas tree. Then they play the pieces and the shifts change. It's like the Stanford Prison Experiment, without the violence and with violins. It's altogether unprecedented.
