Storyline

An old explorer close to freezing in the Arctic re-lives the events that brought him there in the first place. He recalls his student days at Trinity College in Dublin when he studied under the enigmatic Professor Orit, the professor who was driven to madness by his obsessive pursuit of the unified theory. Convinced that the answer somehow lay in the relationship between the numbers two, three and five, Professor Orit's obsession started the journey which has led his former student to the top of the world.

O'Connell has yet another lovely short film.
15 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"23 Degrees, 5 Minutes" was written and directed by Darragh O'Connell--the same guy who produced two Oscar-nominated shorts--"Give Up Yer Aul Sins" and "Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty" (which I adore because the short is so wickedly funny). John Hurt and Stuart Townsend provide the voices (quite excellently I might add) for the characters. This short from Brown Bag Films is rendered using CGI--and very nice computer animation at that.

The story is about a very strange and very obsessed professor. He has decided to conquer the so-called unified theory--a mathematical formula which will explain life, the universe and everything (and no, it is NOT 42). This weird obsession takes him to the North Pole--and some time after his disappearance, one of his old students goes there in search of the man or his remains. What happens next? See the film and find out. While I did guess the ending, it was sweet and cleverly made from start to finish.
