One of the few fun films nominated for Best Live Action Short this year....
This film is a strange little comedy about a very odd Swiss woman (ably played by British actress Jane Birkin). Every morning, like clockwork, she arises from bed at 6:05am in order to wave at the train speeding past her house. And, in the evenings, she does the same each time waving her Swiss flag madly at the passing train! Apart from this odd ritual, she is a grouchy and rather miserable woman. However, her mundane and antisocial demeanor begins to change when someone from the train begins sending her fan mail thanking her for the years she's spent greeting the train! She, in turn, begins writing back to this unknown admirer! What's next?
Just see this one, as I don't want to spoil the suspense. This film is just fun .something that can't really be said about most of the nominees this year. In fact, so many of the films left the audience feeling a bit depressed that La Femme et la TGU has a strong chance of winning, though I'd still bet on Enemies Within.
