This idea is rather interesting. EI OM ZEEP is, in English, "The Killing of an Egg" and is about a guy who is about to eat a soft-boiled egg. As he's cracking the egg, he can hear a voice coming from within--telling him to STOP! Every time he hits the egg, someone from within the egg yells at him. Then, the film abruptly switches to the man inside the egg. He must be tiny but has a nice little room inside there. It's all pretty weird but cute, but there really isn't much of a story beyond this. I really would have loved it if they took this clever idea and teased it out into something more--something using this as a general framework. Unfortunately, it's just a nice idea and not a lot more.
