Storyline

After a long long day of shopping, three grumpy, lazy old ladies, Effie, Paula and Eleanor, take a ride in their old beetle. Unfortunately they run out of fuel and head to a gas station. But who's gonna get out of the car to actually refuel the beetle? Luckily the gas station attendant saves the day. A little suspicious one of the grannies hands over some money. Totally unexpected the attendant offers something else. Fear arises when suddenly a group of, not too shabby looking, men walk towards the car. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

An Underestimated Short
28 February 2003 | by (Wisbech, Cambs) – See all my reviews

Short films are a very hit or miss affair. I often sit in a room, feeling that I might be the only person that gets the gist of what a specific director is trying to say.

This film is one of those films, not obvious in what it tries to say, but after a few repeated viewings it is possible to get some emotive response.

This delightful, dark comedic film, gives us a view of some magical business, that appeals to each customer as they arrive. The main plot surrounds three middle aged women trying to get fuel after a shopping trip. They are offered something extra, and are faced by some strapping mechanics. The suggestive camerawork, and soundtrack build up a feeling of sexual arousal, peaking just as the car is soaped. The hose down is so obviously phallic, that we instantly get it all, as do the flustered ladies in the morris minor.

As they drive off, without fuel may I add, another car pulls in, and the circle continues.

This film will not appeal to everyones taste, but is an entertaining, fulfilling short.

Enjoy...
