A world, as spotless, bleak and cold as its uniform design is not a good place for a dreamer like Lutz. With as much courage as desperation, relying only on his skills and imagination, he faces a terrible fate and fights for his personal happy end. At the end of the twenty-first century society has given up on the illusion of happiness for everyone. Another ideal has taken its place. Your usefulness for society has become the measure of all things. Based on it's own rating of the citizens, a dehumanized system distributes goods and services to the inhabitants of it's world. Lutz is not cut out for this. He is a romantic aficionado of nostalgic 2D-films of the twenties century.

I was attracted to this short film because the central idea resembled Orwell's 1984 and wondered if the short could bring something new to the table in a well trod path to a Dystopian future . Not much to be brutally honest and to be fair it's always difficult to bring a new twist to this tale . D.I.M is also let down greatly by computer graphics and green screen that is all too patently computer graphics and green screen . What is interesting is that it's a German film and you'll notice some allegorical turns of phrase and imagery that Germany is ill remembered for . It does also have a very witty dig at the media which I liked , a sort of DEAL OR NO DEAL that instantly reminded me of the DOCTOR WHO story Vengeance On Varos and there is a clever twist at the end that I didn't see coming
