This short film about the end of the world by Nicolas Saada, known for the 2009 "Espion(s)" spy thriller, is beautifully shot, well acted, and very intriguing. It was done for a special program hosted by the cable TV channel Ciné + and shown in the MK2 theaters in Paris. We follow Louise (Bénérice Béjo) who goes to work at the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand after leaving her son at school. On her way, a strange man gives her some sort of warning. Then, the sirens go off and all computers and cell-phones stop working. Everybody has to evacuate the building in a hurry. Special appearance by renowned director Frederick Wiseman adds a special touch of mystery. It all ends too soon and that is the only thing wrong about this film. What has actually happened ? Who was this strange man ? We can only guess. Let's hope Nicolas Saada will expand this in a feature film. This story rightfully deserves a longer treatment.
