Short, funny, effective
28 April 2004 | by gulinoSee all my reviews

This is actually a remarkable short film and a highly entertaining one. The plot involves a grocery store holdup that goes awry. The performances are great and the twists really work. The camerawork is virtuousic (it's made to look like one continuous take, though if you watch closely you can find one cut during a swish-pan). The filmmakers apparently rehearsed it extensively then did only two takes during production.

The only drawback is the title, which is offensive and has no discernible connection to the content of the film.

In German with English subtitles (at least the print I saw).
