When I watched this short film for the first time, I wanted to avoid watching it, because the last scene was so grotesque for me. However, I found a brilliant point of this movie at the same time. It's visual telling. Without telling aloud, I could understand core characters' minds and the killer's working class. At the beginning, I sympathized with the man who tried to apply for welfare, because the female office worker treated him roughly. However, at the last, I changed my mind; I sympathized her because of the male killer, and I could not bear the same feeling to the male applicant, because he took some selfish action after the killer appeared. Moreover, trough this film, I could catch what problem gave pain to British people and what kind of them struggled from it, of course, this film told me it with visual materials. To tell the truth, I don't want to watch this film, because it shows an aspect of human being; it is selfish. I don't have a tolerance for the grotesque human characteristic, so I can't stand to watch it. However, some good points is included, so I recommend you to watch it at least one time.
