Six Great Minutes

I got a chance to catch this short film at the Milano Film Festival. It was a great little surprise with a big message. As far as I could tell, (I don't speak German) the acting was fantastic and what destroys many short films is terrible actors. The screenplay was tight and packed a heavy punch. Outsourcing is a major problem that we have with globalization and this problem is spreading throughout the states and Europe. And Markus Dietrich conveys his point through clever comedy. The director also shows how a short film can be made with limited locations and budget. A fantastic film that made hundreds of people just a bit smarter after leaving the theater.
