Surrealist!
31 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A brainbusting story about a couple who checks-in a small hotel where strange things start happening the minute they enter their room. Michel Lonsdale plays a character with his usual "sang froid" but that's not enough to cope with the string of strange events that will take place from the moment he opens his travel pouch to get a nail clipper. I guess everybody in the real life have moments when things seem to have disappeared, or have been in places where unexpected situations seem to turn into nightmares. This short film manages to capture our attention from the very beginning and leaves us to a completely unexpected ending. A must see!
