Excellent short with amazing attention to detail
I saw this short as part of the Cinequest Viewers Voice Online Film Festival, and found the film highly entertaining and extremely funny. I'm a huge fan of all of Tom Tykwer's films, and have been since I saw "Run Lola Run". As such, I was really impressed with the meticulous attention to detail that was paid in this short. This film does an outstanding job of capturing the look, feel, and sound of "Run Lola Run", and there are many examples in the film's set, cinematography, and music that illustrate the respect that the filmmakers and composer clearly have for "Run Lola Run". It works beautifully as an homage, and at the same time the characters and dialog were well-executed and clever, giving the film a unique voice that allows it to succeed independent of whether the viewer has seen "Run Lola Run" or not.
On top of all that, it's flat-out hilarious. There are more than a few lines of memorable dialog and one viewing definitely wasn't enough for me. Hopefully it will make its way to the east coast so I can have a chance to see it locally on the big screen.
