This is a very positive comment about this short film
29 August 2001 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

Julio Medem is one of the most important directors in Spain. In fact, his way of filming is unique and nobody can compares to him. Maybe is not the best director, but is really personal and that is strange in Spain. Talking about Las seis en punta, this is one of the earliest films by Julio Medem, but you can see on it a lot of the subjects that have made him so great. First of all, the story. A man has a clock and suddenly (exactly at six o'clock -las seis en punto-) he starst to shrinken as fast as possible. In this film there are no FX or something similar. Everything is just a game of editing. You can't never see him going smaller, but you can imagine. I mean, just with some images, Medem can make you think what he wants, and that's magic. That´s the magic of cinema. Te way of filming is also special and the end (I won't clear it out) is much better than the classic of The Incredible Shrinking Man. I guess is almost impossible to see this film abroad Spain, but if you have a chance to see it, you are going to discover a great filmmaker.
