In the tradition of classic westerns, a narrator sets up the story of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon. However, the people in this saloon can hear the narrator and the narrator may just be a little bit bloodthirsty.
I saw this movie at the 'Shnit!' short film Festival in Bern, Switzerland. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The beginning is relatively slow-paced, and as the viewer is trying to figure out where this strange tale might be going, the tone of the movie shifts. What follows is a suspenseful, fun-to-watch action scene, that still doesn't reveal the Punch line of the story. Before the punch line, the movie suddenly takes a violent and bloody turn. The Punch line? See for yourself. But I will say this much: The production values of this film are on par with 100mil Action Blockbusters. Pictures, sound, editing, WOW! And the story is just awesome. What a clever (funny and weird) idea!
The movie might not be for everybody because of the very graphic violence (for about one minute of the film). But for the rest?
Go watch it! You're missing out if you don't.
