stupid short movie
13 December 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

something called 'life' could be pretty boring, and the images we get to see, actually are very boring. the thing we all suspect this film will be about, is a 'life' shown in pictures or in this case, in a short film. the question remains: how can a life be nice to see? we must confess: we hate life, even if we are optimists, we never are happy with the way things are in our life. an experimental picture like this, could be really boring. I already said it: this picture is boring, so we have no great expectations anymore. when you're watching some BEEP that's called 'Life', you should know before you watch, it's going to be a hell of a time to sit it out. so what is this life about? well, nothing but the birth of a baby. I asked myself if this is staged or not, because it was obvious the actress hired to play the part of the mother was laughing instead of crying her lungs out to give birth to her baby. and wow! the baby is suddenly there, like a magic trick that worked, like an illusion, and the baby is very hairy too! ha ha, it made me laugh, what a stupid movie was this?
