Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funny yet messed up
1 December 2003 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Not for kids. But this one shows a man (who is swearing in traffic), and asks his daughter how was everything going. And the daughter tells the new, thus getting him shocked, and kind of messed up. Creative, silly, and this one will get an R rating by the looks of it. How could this short from France get nominated an Oscar (even though it has nudity and gore, not to mention really strong language). Oh well, it is good.
