Storyline

At a Chrysler dealership, we're in day four of a contest: whoever can leave their hand on the car the longest, wins the car. Four contestants are still standing, and Don is starting to crumple: his wife and son, looking on, yell at him not to give up, to keep his hand on the car. The other three (Gene, Tracey, and Chung) allow themselves a small smile and a shared glance. Then Gene starts staring at Tracey, and with Chung looking on, Gene makes a startling declaration. Is he trying to psyche out Tracey? Has four days of standing in the sun flipped him out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the best shorts I've seen in years!
17 January 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

The plot is amazingly simple and brilliantly executed. Casting was great - very believable characters that are real, not stereotypical. Well, maybe the 'Zen Master' Asian guy is a bit stereotypical, but his ultra-disciplined silence is humorous. These guys did an excellent job of telling a cute story in a simple and interesting way. I like the way most of the story is built through the characters' actions and subtle expressions, not lengthy dialogue. And best of all, I was not expecting the ending. It was refreshing to see a short where the director actually relied and focused on strong performances, not flashy camera or editing techniques.
