Breaking the tranquillity of a timeless natural landscape, a lost regiment of soldiers engages in a never-ending ritual. Tattoo reveals the senseless beauty of military drill, performed by the Light Division of the British Army. ‘Tattoo is a gem of military movement and body language, wittily filmed and edited’ - Jill Sykes, Reeldance Festival at Sydney Opera House Studio 2002 ‘Filming on a wide open expanse of land and evincing a brilliant use of light and shadow, Pennell perfectly captures the severe conformity and geometric precision of the regiment.’ - Glenn Sumi, review of ‘Moving Pictures Festival’ Toronto 2002
