Superior short film.
2 September 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This wide screen Dutch one reeler shows more imagination and sophisticated film technique than most programs of short movies.

The jogger is passed by the boy on the bike among the motorway pillars and tree stumps. He sees the bike boy about to be run down by a truck and time appears to freeze, giving the runner a chance to investigate the possibilities in three dimensions.

The layering is impeccable, with no hint of digital texture or outline, and it is used tellingly as with the falling apple.

The content is slight but this one knows how long to play it. And here's another line to bring this up to length.
