Ben Willis is an art student who works the night shift several times a week at the Whitechapel Sainsbury's. He's clear about the arrangement: he trades his time for money - cashback, as he calls it. We meet his co-workers, Sharon, Barry, and Matt, and their supervisor, Jenkins. Ben's colleagues are good at wasting time, but Ben talks to us about how he makes his shift go faster: by imagining that time has stopped. We see this late-night world of drudgery through Ben's eyes, as time does indeed stop, and he can get out his sketch book. Written by
Some of the items checked out by Sharon at the beginning of the film include Kellogg's Corn Flakes, a 2-liter bottle of Coca Cola, dish washing detergent, and a package of Cadbury Mini Rolls. The box of Ritz Crackers is not checked out and is instead used to block the clock from her field of view. See more »
alright - i first watched the full length movie, and this prompted me to look up the original short movie. i was astonished to see the exact scenes from the full movie comprise this short length. initially i thought somehow these scenes were later integrated into the full length, but my thought is that the full length was probably already in post-production when someone decided to 'promote' the film by giving out this short version first (which is nothing bad).
it actually works as a short movie, but having seen the full one i cant really comment on it because it is like a trailer to the full movie - it has the essence of the main plot, but nothing more than a hint of the beautiful ideas and artwork of the full length movie.
i loved the full movie, watch it and probably you will like it too
10/10, which is how i vote for the full length movie :)
