It's just 15 minutes long, but is the funniest short movie you can ever see. No argument, weird characters... all the ingredients for a bad movie make here an incredibly amusing film. Javer Fesser shows in his second work a style that is very close to WB's cartoons. If you can see it at a festival or something like it, don't miss it.
