Storyline

Three wordless rituals: birth, between, and rebirth. A woman lies at the bottom of a swimming pool, alone. The camera pans her body. She starts to rise, then sinks; convulsions follow and then she rises and hovers above the pool. A shirtless man in white pants stands in an asphalt lot, a car visible on either side. Convulsions begin. The cars back up, still facing him and each other. They pause; they race toward him. He leaps. A youth, shirtless and in white shorts, stands in front of a tall building. Doors open, he enters and walks to an elevator. Convulsions strike him as he rides to a top floor, exits the elevator, pauses, and runs toward a window. He crashes through.

Eve Sander summed it up very well, though I was less impressed
10 January 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It only seems fair to give credit where credit is due. While I didn't enjoy WE HAVE DECIDED NOT TO DIE, I must admit that Eve Sanders in her IMDb review did a very good job of encapsulating the film. I suggest you read her review in addition to mine, as I don't want to just repeat much of what she said. However, I should point out that while she liked this short Australian film, I didn't--though I could appreciate the work and skill it took to film it. The three segments all represent three stages of life and are carried out without dialog. My problem is that I just didn't find any of it interesting or compelling. Skilled, yes. Compelling, no. By the time this was finished as it played on The Independent Film Channel, I was aching to see what was coming on next.
