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 »

definitely memorable
10 April 1999 | by (mmcdanna@yahoo.com) – See all my reviews

i didn't know what to expect as i watched this short german film. i'd never read or heard anything about it, knowing only that it would be about racism. let me say that you will not get what you might expect.

i don't want to ruin the beauty of this film so i'll leave out any details and merely say that i thought of the ending about 10 times between the movie's conclusion and my bed-time, and that each time i did so, a huge smile crossed my face, accompanied by a chuckle. watch it.
