Evgeniy's hobby is to send fake letters to real countries. He has collected a letter from every country except New Zealand, and he sends a letter there. Things turn worst when he actually receives a letter from someone there.
Dane only has one chance to make a stellar first impression. Good thing there's a lie detector present at his job interview! *BEEP* He's screwed. And he's going to find out just how much the truth really hurts.
In the tradition of classic westerns, a narrator sets up the story of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon. However, the people in this saloon can hear the narrator and the narrator may just be a little bit bloodthirsty.
This is the path writer-director Shirlyn Wong's short film takes here. Early on it seems, Dafoe's character intends to kill the old lady (supposedly still his mom at that point) with his meal, then they look like a loving couple and finally we find out he is, in fact, a machine. That is also why he could not eat any fish. Or ice. Or did not help her when she was about to choke. Major turn of events here.
I enjoyed watching these 9 minutes. The scenes with the ice were funny. I can't see any deep message in here or major emotional impact it could have had, but it's an entertaining short film and Willem Dafoe is fun to watch as always. The only thing Iwas a bit confused with was the ending. Did the other lady get him out of the garbage or did she have another of these robots and there was some kind of mass production. Anyway, give it a look. It is nicely done and the music used here fits it very well.
