Funny for some reason
8 December 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I don't really know what it is with this movie, but it's really funny! A guy is searching for a new roommate and finds the perfect roommate in a ninja.

I don't know what it is with this movie. The story is actually really stupid, but at the same time very funny. The reason for this, I believe, is the way it's made.

It's a simple short with few characters and simple and few settings. It gives you the background you need while it tells the story. They keep it short and don't try to haul it out longer than necessary. In other words well written. The actors are good. They does a great job in making this funny and not silly. They are funny, but manage to keep the movie serious. The cinematography is good and so is the music. It makes a nice mood. It stands as kind of a contrast to the action and so it makes everything even more funny.

All together an enjoyable little shot film.
