Storyline

A young man shoots hoops in an empty gym. He misses constantly. At the other end of the court, a young woman arrives and starts warming up. She rarely misses. He's white, she's African-American. From time to time, she glances at him and smiles. He's fully aware of her presence and of his lack of talent. Is there any way he can impress her? His imagination takes over.

A pleasant time-passer
23 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This French short begins with a nerdy guy alone in the gym shooting a basketball. Again and again, he misses every shot and is hopelessly inept. Then, a lady enters the gym to shoot and he tries very hard to impress her. This is kind of cute--especially when he still continues to miss every shot but at least looks cool doing it! Towards the end, out of the blue, he makes an excellent shot and looks great--oddly, for this scene, a Black man is his double and it's obviously not him. Perhaps this is meant that to be a good player, you need a Black man within or something--I dunno. As it is, it's a pleasant time-passer--but nothing great.

By the way, this film is part of the CINEMA 16: European Shorts DVD. On this DVD are 16 shorts. Most aren't great, though because it contains THE MAN WITHOUT A HEAD, COPY SHOP, RABBIT and WASP, it's an amazing DVD for lovers of short films and well worth buying.
