On a cold winter evening a young manager gets stuck in traffic on his way home from work. He takes his brand new mobile to call his wife, not knowing that by doing so he is about to cause irreparable damage.
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
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.
