    This film is an absolute jewel, a once-in-a-decade type of gem, that shines darkly in the world of obscure and impossible to find short films. It features Timothy Balme, the excellent actor from Peter Jackson's Braindead, in a super-real nightmarish adventure that combines with science and genius the elements of film noir and the apocalyptic but absolutely brilliant vision of a world without women. From the photography, to the music and screenplay, this film is absolutely haunting and will leave tracks in the viewer's mind for a very long time (I have seen it in 1996 and still remember it vividly). When such a brilliant short film is made and released, one might wonder why such a prestigious work is not broadcasted on TV more often, featured in DVD featurettes, or simply talked about more. It received a special prize at Cannes in 1996 from the French TV channel Canal +, but no one seems to notice. It has Timothy Balme in it, but sadly he's disappeared from view during the last decade, so no one really cares or remembers about him either. But I am absolutely certain that there will be a day when a pretentious low-budget independent filmmaker will dig this short film out to make it a full-length feature - which will be a mistake, unless if it has the advantage of bringing this marvelous use of cinema (back) to light.

    Do not miss your chance if you are offered to see it.
