Among the best shorts of the past years
29 August 2006 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

'Lucky' is a short film about a man trapped in a speeding cars trunk and what happens when he's able to free himself...

I stumbled across 'Lucky' through a magazine article about new short films and since it could be downloaded I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised by it's looks and the camera works and overall by what could be achieved with so little in terms of set, props and actors. The narrative is tight, which is not a wonder given the films 3 minute running time. The surroundings, a road in the Australian desert, is adds a beautiful touch in terms of gritty realism and the natural light is beautiful. The film has great stunt work and an unexpected 'funny' ending.

Overall it's a very good short film with great production values. If you liked this, you might also try the short 'Prey Alone'.
