Storyline

A feather is carried by the wind and falls through a lattice. A man, big glasses, is waiting for the subway to arrive and gets in. It's an ordinary subway. People are just waiting for the train to stop at their destination. They are estranged people, torchbearers of an individualistic society. No one is talking, everything that breaks the silence is a possible nuisance. The feather falls on the head of the man. A feather that will have major consequences, but for how long?

Passengers is an amazing short film about a group of strangers connecting on a NYC subway train. The black and white photography is terrific - it helps to quickly establish the homogenous nature of the city's rank and file as they go about their daily commute. The sound design likewise serves the story - unlike many non-sync productions (in which characters look like they want to talk but can't), here the lack of dialogue helps to emphasize the distance between the characters. But most of all it's the expressive performances that makes this film a winner. Highly recommended.
