It's snowing, evening is falling, and traffic on the E17 in Antwerp is gridlocked. Tim, dressed in a suit, driving alone, is impatient, yelling at his radio, popping pills. He decides to try his new mobile phone; he calls home and his daughter answers. He asks for her mommy, and his daughter says that mommy's upstairs with "Uncle Wim." Tim, who knows there's no Uncle Wim in the family, suspects something is rotten in the state of Belgium, so he asks his daughter to do him a favor. She sets down the phone and heads upstairs while he waits impatiently in traffic. After a few minutes, she returns with her report. Written by
About a week ago, I watched and loved a British short entitled DADDY'S LITTLE HELPER. I liked it so much, I couldn't wait to review it on IMDb. However, only a week later I stumbled upon FAIT D'HIVER and found that DADDY'S LITTLE HELPER was an almost exact copy--with only a few differences. Since then, DADDY'S LITTLE HELPER's director/co-writer, Daniel Wilson contacted me to swear the similarities were unintentional--which can happen and occasionally does. Ain't life odd?!
As for the film, it is super funny though there is some nudity (whereas in the British film there's none). I could try to explain what happened when the daddy calls his little girl, but it might ruin the suspense. Just see this cute and disturbing little short yourself--you'll be glad you did.
