A frustratingly unusual yet weirdly enjoyable short film
25 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is 2050 and life is better now because it is created and branded by The Corporation. Martin Dwyer enjoys the privilege of no war, no sickness and no suffering but he has been called to the main corporate building. He goes along happily until he learns from the receptionist that his appointment is on the 200th floor – the top floor.

Just doing enough to convince of a future that could exist, this film is mostly about suspense and the curiosity value of wanting to find out what awaits Dwyer at the top of the building. However once he gets there it doesn't actually deliver on this and becomes something much different – much weirder and almost surreal. I won't go into it but for me it didn't make any sense at all and I was more bemused by it than anything else – even the choice of music over the closing credits was bewilderingly out of the blue. The end result is a strange mishmash of a film that will frustrate those who get into part of it because it doesn't do anything all the way through. The direction by Honey is impressive though and they have done really well with very little – creating a good future and presenting fear, paranoia and the absurd all equally well.

Dobry is an interesting face to watch. Brezovska adds to the sense of the absurd that the film brings out in the second half. Spildlova and Geislerova are both sexy and add to the otherworldy feel of the film by virtue of their looks and their accents. Nobody is terrible but this short is not about the performances, not even about the story. It is about the direction, the world and the altering feel it has – none of these things are brilliant but it is so different and unusual that it is memorable and worth seeing just to have at least given it a try.
