A study of the face of a young woman, before, during, and after orgasm. "Moment presents a continuous, fixed gaze by the camera at a girl's face. That fixity, although paralleling the spectator's position, nevertheless marks itself off as 'different' from our view because it refuses the complex system of movements, cuts, 'invisible' transitions, etc. which classic cinema developed to capture our 'subjectivity' and absorb it into the filmic text." Paul Willemen, 1977.
