Abstract
This delightful comedy from Rolf de Heer serves to once again prove that the Adelaide-based filmmaker is one of the most gifted and restlessly inventive filmmakers working in the medium. A silent black-and-white film made in the tradition of Buster Keaton and the Keystone Cops, Dr Plonk is a slapstick tale about (among other things) the perils of time-travel and the resourcefulness of Jack Russell Terriers.
