Storyline

In a very crowded supermarket parking lot, a young woman looks for a place to park her beat-up VW hatchback. After several failures to get to an open space before another car grabs it, she spots a car leaving a space several lanes away. She knows that the driver of gleaming new Porsche has his eyes on the same spot. She floors it, as does he, and the race is on. Can determination will out over speed and handling?

simple, to the point, i like it
27 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Having some free time on my hands I decided to watch some short films on Atomfilms. "Frei Parken" (or Free Parking) runs around 7 minutes and tells the simple story of a woman trying to get a parking space, but there are a few obstacles in her path. This feeling is universal and of course it's dramatized for entertainment porpoises but overall it's just a fun little short film. This is what short films should be about. No complex plots, no experimental filming techniques to satisfy you and your art house friends. Just quick in, quick out and leave them waiting more. Kudos to Bernhard Jasper and to a lesser extant Christopher Roth

My Grade: B+
