An experimental Jeunot and Caro short
21 January 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

In a post-apocalyptic world a group of soldiers live in a concrete bunker. As far as they know, they could be the last men on the planet. One day one of them finds a mysterious machine with a counter set to 99999. An accident triggers the device to start counting down towards zero. This leads to paranoia within the base and the men soon start killing one and other.

The Bunker of the Last Gunshots is basically a very early example of the work of directors Jean-Pierre Jeunot and Marc Caro. It shares some of the hallmarks of the two 90's films that brought them to prominence – Delicatessen and The City of the Lost Children. Like those two this one is set in a future world where something unspecified has gone wrong. It also shares the retro-futuristic décor and devices. It's consistently interesting visually, with considerable care taken with the set-design as well as the costumes. The colour palette is limited to mainly green monochrome, which gives off an appropriate gloomy atmosphere. The story isn't very easy to interpret seeing as it is told with no dialogue but the sound design otherwise is very inventive, with a variety of strange noises used throughout. As a result, this is a much more experimental piece that the 90's feature films Jeunot and Caro are most famous for. But it is an interesting bit of work and is sure to be of value especially to fans of these directors.
