A military group of men is locked up in a bunker in an unknown future. All those soldiers are waiting for an eventual enemy. But the discovery of a certain project will cause several catastrophies and will make those men kill each other... Written by
A compelling 25 minute short film about a group of soldiers locked inside a concrete bunker and the ensuing madness that follows from being locked there for an unspecified amount of time. They send distress signals to the outside world but there doesn't seem to by anyone left to reply. They might as well be the last survivors of some final war. There's a cold clinical almost mechanical look to the film which is tinted ghoulish green like a silent film and Jeunet displays not only a remarkable grasp of cinematic language, sustaining interest with an almost nonexistent storyline and no dialogues through an interesting shot selection, but also of style and atmosphere. The movie ultimately descends into chaos and with it loses that sense of foreboding mystery that makes the first half so good, but it's still a compelling watch.
