Pretty Funny.I saw this on Criterion´s M. Hulot's Holiday DVD.It is very inspired by the boxing scene in City Light.This short film is of course not as good because that is one of the funniest(or best) scenes in film history.It´s hard to rate short films but if I should rate it I give it a 4 out of 5.
