Introduction by Ragne Soosalu.

“Everything moves: nothing stands still!” Jean Tinguely’s words weren’t just true for his crazy machines but for his whole life. His poetic machines and moving sculptures have fascinated people all over the world. His courageous life inspired an entire generation. Twenty years after his death the “bande à Jean” – a circle of friends and acquaintances – remembers the exceptional artist, who didn’t just break boundaries in his work but also in his private life. The film offers a sometimes cheerful and sometimes melancholic view, looking back on an exceptional life, but it is also an invitation to face the challenge of each new day, because there is no such thing as standing still.
