A French boarding school run by priests seems to be a haven from World War II until a new student arrives. He becomes the roommate of top student in his class. Rivals at first, the roommates form a bond and share a secret.
Interesting short film. I see the director's point about how Tarantino's story for Reservoir Dogs is similar to City on Fire... but who really cares? Everything these days is a remake or a re-imagining of something that's already been done before. Just watch Swingers; they have a great conversation about the issue in that movie, and they go on to re-enact a scene (fittingly) from Reservoir Dogs.
Other than that, the editing was sort of amateur. It was a cool idea to overlay the audio of one film with the video of the other film, but the timing was sort of bad. There were some parts of the film that went for too long, that could have been trimmed down.
