Nominated 2012 – Best Short
One fateful night, Adam encounters a mysterious vagrant, which sets into motion a strange sequence of events. Following instructions from an unusual source, Adam is led on a wild journey through the night in pursuit of a beautiful girl.
A very witty, back and white fantasy, deftly edited. Makes you laugh out loud and then cruelly darkens again like all good fairy tales. – Tim McInnerny
An enjoyably well-executed film. Always satisfying to see a more conceptual short that avoids becoming too “one-note”. The cigarette-packet device was simple and well realised. Such a simple device in fact, that I felt like it might have successfully begun with that and unfolded from there without the set-up of the first few minutes. – Jim Field Smith
