Trivia

This short film is inspired from a Norwegian commercial promoting the monthly ticket available from Oslo's public transport system written by Lasse Åberg, a Swedish comedian. Åberg also got inspiration from the urban legend "The Eaten Ticket" that first appeared in Denmark in the 1980's and soon spread to neighboring countries. See more »

It turns on an interest to watching short films again.
8 January 2008 | by (United States Portland Or) – See all my reviews

As a producer, director, and writer I tend to watch things the first time without attaching my expert cynicisms. I leave that for the second viewing. This film deserves a watch, and a purchase to your permanent collection of short films.

And if your new to shorts this will set your benchmark very high for quality of story; which makes up for about 95% of a films quality, especially for the lack of originality the industry suffers from.

Finally, the production quality in the very first shot is very deceptive in that it requires patience for researchers of the art and craft such as myself.
