| How funny can sin be?
I saw Headhunter at an LA film festival and found it really funny (most of the audience was cracking up), profound and as well made as a feature, unlike many short films.

Director/writer Roumelis plays with our ideas of sin and temptation like a ping-pong champion. Our sympathies bounce between Yves the Priest and the mysterious young man in the confessional (compellingly rendered by Joseph Griffin - watch for him).

While part of our brain is trying to figure out the story, the other part of is tracking a chocolate bar on screen like a laser beam. Never has an opportunity for a product placement been wasted like this! You have to see the film to appreciate how the director transforms desire for a chocolate bar or a cigarette into a grail of temptation.

The only comparable film I can think of in terms of mixing morality and humor so effervescently is actually also a short, Fellini's "The Temptation of Dr. Antonio" (Anita Ekberg) which is praise of the highest order. Find a way to see "Headhunter" or anything else this director has up his sleeve. Just take a chocolate bar in your pocket, you will need it.
