The movie is only 12 minutes long. Avoid all discussion of plot.
16 April 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The movie is only 12 minutes long, so anything anyone tells you about the plot is a spoi1er. I wouldn't read the other review if I were you.

Without saying a peep about the plot, I'll tell you what you can expect. This is a VERY Tykwer film. By that I mean the colours are vivid yet dark; the dialogue is sparse, drawing you into the thick suspense; the camera moves smoothly as if it were a spirit circling around the lives of mortals. All of this builds a very strange and supernatural mood that leaves you not knowing what to expect. Like a bizarre Franz Kafka story, it crosses boldly into fantasy while remaining solidly rooted in reality. Tom Tykwer is great at doing that.

You'll definitely recognize elements of RUN LOLA RUN, and the colour scheme is similar to WINTERSCHLAFER, blood red. If you find a copy of this rare short, watch it, have fun with it, let it mess with your mind. If nothing else it'll have you up all night wondering what it was all about!
