Storyline

An over-crowded bus in rush-hour traffic is no-ones idea of fun, but that's just the beginning of Gaz's problems. With the mobile phone abuse at a high, he can't help but get a little fidgety. As incoming calls go unanswered, and the endless shrill tones relentlessly pierce his eardrums, he finds it increasingly difficult to keep it together. But it shouldn't be too long, they should be moving in no time. If he can just hold on a little longer. Too late! Written by Dan Turner

CONNECTING (Dan Turner, 2005) **1/2
2 May 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Curiously included on a preview DVD I acquired of upcoming 2008 theatrical releases was this winner of a Short Film competition organized by the British magazine “Total Film”. The premise is very simple: a young man on a bus, caught in a traffic jam on a rainy day, is driven up the wall by his fellow passengers’ obsession with cell phones. He cracks up, beats the boy sitting next to him to a pulp, threatens others with a gun, and searches furiously in the other people’s various bags for every offending ringing phone. Eventually, it transpires that all of this is just a dream – except that there is a cellphone ringing, which is bugging the hell out of the remaining passengers on the bus…and it’s the protagonist’s! This is a modest but clever little 6-minute film, with the tight editing its most notable element.
