Storyline

Amidst a senseless and perpetual war, an armed aircraft crashes behind the enemy lines in the middle of the unending and snow-covered Tundra and its downed pilot is taken hostage by a self-contained soldier. As the two men pass through the pathless and desolate forest with the hostage always at gunpoint, a game of wits and perseverance will begin to unfold. Who has what it takes to outsmart his opponent?

the owl
30 September 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

as witness of a confrontation who seems the right manifesto against war. because, in fact, this is the motif who gives to this short film a special charm. two soldiers. a sort of cat-and-mouse game. and perfect landscape. the change of roles. and the captivity . and, sure, the owl. it is impressive the manner to give, in less than 10 minutes, a subtle, powerful and convincing message, using the black humor as basic tool. because it is one of films who are surprising for the smart solution to a crisis who seems a chess game.
