Wonderful short film beautifully shot in black & white. A shy dog shampooer stuck in a monotonous life decides to build a time machine in his bedsit - but he lacks imagination and only goes back in time to the day before (or does he?) The machine itself is a wonderful construction of junk bric-a-brac that he has carefully put together. Superbly acted by all.Brian Teles who plays Tom is simply marvellous as the dog shampooer. His quiet understated performance anchors this gem of a film. The scene in the café near the end is priceless. Cleverly made with excellent production values. Superb musical score. A true piece of cinematic art that will stay with you for a very long time.
