Campion short
18 November 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

A brother and sister, and his young son are driving back home. The son starts throwing out orange peels. There is heated exchanges and the son leaves the car. Honestly, I expected a car to run over the kid. There is good tension with the arguing and the cars speeding by. In the end, I don't understand what happened and I don't think I care. This won the Short Film Palme d'Or in 1986.
