Is he a true artist? Lets find out.
29 June 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Here we have a 15-minute black-and-white short film by writer and director Lancelot von Naso. The whole film is basically about a severely disturbed painter (in a creative crisis) who is obsessed with a certain quote. That quote says that only a talented artist can paint a very basic image of a human being falling out of a window before he hits the ground. Or I should probably say "she" as the artist here tries to find out his kill by killing two women that way. They only thought they would be models. But will he also push out a third one, the one he has a crush on? Art or love? Which is he going to choose? The ending was somewhat funny and pretty smart actually and elevated the entire short movie. The song during the closing credits I am not so sure if I liked it or if it fits the picture. Anyway, wow it's been so long since Ralf Bauer played lead characters in quality films, 15 years ago this one. Recommended.
