David Berman and his friends, all Holocaust survivors, have only one purpose: to go to America as soon as possible. For this they need money. Close to his aim, David is not only deprived of his savings but also overtaken by his shady past.
To provide some context first: This short was filmed as camera tests with Neill Blomkamp, who was at some point considered to do the HALO Movie. All you see here are basically just camera tests he did during his trial runs.
Yet another zero-script, no-story short posted... why? Four minutes of fight scene, yet another "Black Widow flip-around-the-head" move choreography stunt, mandatory F-bomb, says-nothing ending.
I wouldn't mind these so much if the people who post them on IMDb told us they're a "college project" or "experiment in graphics" etc. Something to let us know to expect nothing more. Then we could decide if we want to spend time watching an incomplete college experiment.
On the positive side, the two lead characters are well-played and somewhat interesting. The CGI character at the end holds some promise, then fails to deliver... and after all it's just another CGI character.
Overall typical "everything here has been done before". If they want a better review, give us a better story. Advertising agencies can provide a moving story in 30 to 60 seconds. Surely any writer / director worth his/her salt can do so in 5 minutes.
I honestly am starting to wonder if IMDb should increase the restrictions on their posting guidelines. Otherwise they're soon going to have listings here for everything posted on YouTube.
