Inspired by writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, Twilight Zone), The Day The World Forgot paints an eerie picture of the world's human population as it migrates to the coasts. Our hero, a lone businessman, meets his last companion on the beach where he watches packs of fellow humans gracefully disappear into the ocean. The twisted phenomenon and simple conversation reveals our hero's crisis, a deep-rooted struggle to let go of everything human. Will he follow in their footsteps? Written by
this short picks up at what appears to be the end of civilization with the last two humans in a world where everyone is driven to commit suicide in the ocean like so many lemmings.
it's well made and even presents the viewer with a haunting image about 1/3 of the way in, but is frustrating as it never tells the viewer what happened or why. if you like movies that leave you guessing, it could be a treat but if you don't it's frustrating.
perhaps it's a statement on pointlessness. if nothing else, it's a strange concept and unlike anything else you'll see. it's like walking into the last 8 minutes of a film and not knowing exactly what's happening.
