Great idea, solid execution
30 June 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Teleportation is a German short film from 6 years ago and runs for slightly over 10 minutes. It is about the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Now you probably think: "oh not not again" as this topic has been dealt with so many times in German movie, then again not really in short films. But this is still a refreshing take on the subject. A group of kids do some physics experimenting and, as their parents leave to celebrate the Fall, the kids believe their teleporting experiment has worked and they moved all their parents away. It's a funny little story and as the film went on, i had to think of "Sputnik", a German film I watched a while ago, which has a very similar plot, but runs for 90 minutes roughly. Then I saw that the director and writer for both works is Markus Dietrich, so it was actually not a coincidence. If you enjoy this short film, see if you can get your hands on "Sputnik" too. It should be pretty difficult though, especially abroad. Anyway, I recommend watching "Teleportation". Solid film all in all.
