Klaus has just passed his driving test for forklifts. But his first day on the job turns out to be the real challenge. Cruel but informative accidents happen. Only few survive the blood shed. A hommage to industrial safety educational films. Written by
Narrator Egon Hoegen is very well known in Germany as the voice of the education series Der 7. Sinn (1966) which gives tips for correct behavior in road traffic. By using this voice at the beginning, it gives the feeling of an authentic safety video for people raised in Germany. See also trivia for Starship Troopers (1997). See more »
I was definitely close to soiling myself last night when I saw this at the Florida Film Festival. Klaus was the highlight of the shorts program I attended. It is shot like the video you might be forced to watch when you are first hired at a company (complete with cheesy music) and shows everything that can go wrong as a forklift driver. You honestly won't think it can possibly get any better, but each situation manages to top the previous one. I don't want to spoil any of the surprises, but it was bloody as hell and extremely violent, but funny enough so you know not to be offended. If there is any way to get this on video or DVD, please let me know.
