Storyline

1851: Elias Howe receives patent for an "Automatic, Continuous Clothing Closure" (zipper) 1889: The Eiffel Tower is completed for the Parisian World Fair of the same year BUT, one detail that the history books never mention is that the World Ended that same year in 1889, in Paris. Just then, Lucifer & the Archangel Michael hatched a successful plan, followed it through, overcoming perilous obstacles, and got the job done. For the first time, our film documents and re-creates the End of the World as it really occurred. Written by Carl Laudan

Stylishly Filmed Theatre of the Absurd
23 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Beautifully shot and executed, this short film is unique and magical. The humor is dark and gleefully droll. Fabulous actors, and amazing music from the Tiger Lillies. Filmed on a vacant film set in Montreal, the setting is a dead ringer for a Paris of the past. Though the film looks "period" the material is given a contemporary kick by Laudan - who handles all aspects of the film with professional polish and flair. The special effects are lots of fun, and have a slightly "tacky" quality, which adds to the tongue-in-cheekiness of the film. Be sure to stick around for the amazing credits - which leave you laughing right until the end. This Canadian director is one to watch!
