A must see short
This films shows the stupidity of all war conflicts throughout human history in a minimalistic and symbolical way. The plot is quite basic - 2 neighbours live peacefully until an apple of discord in the form of beautiful flower appears. They fight over it eventually murdering their families and each other.
I have no clue how this film got classified as a documentary.
I have no clue how this film could have won an Oscar without the wife and children murder scene. If you throw away the rest of the short and just leave that scene without any backstory,it will touch you deeply in the heart.
It captures the essence of war - terror,grief,pain. The pain of the non interfering observer.
Despite simplicity of the visual means in this scene,the "language" is very grotesque and powerful,one can compare it to the the language of the Bible or Iliad,to the aesthetics of Greek sculpture.
All in all it is a must see short,enjoy watching!
