Very strange short
7 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an attempt at an artsy type film, not really much point to the film. definitely not something to watch more then once. almost agonizing to watch even the first time. many scenes with time lapse photography, with really no point. Movie starts off with five minutes of a phone ringing with time laps of a guy fiddling with a digital clock. then jumps to more time laps photos of city streets with someone speaking in German I think.

Again no real sense to any flow to this at all. then flips to a goldfish swimming in the waves on a beach, with text describing scenes you might expect from a movie, again, with no real point to it at all. Can't really say much about this, other then don't go out of your way to see it.
