In 2010, this won the Oscar for Best Short...sometimes, they do get it right.

This is exactly what every short filmmaker should aspire to...structured, layered and textured. Bleak, black and hysterical.

What more can you ask for? More from Joachim Back...sadly, he has - to date - made only one more film....an elongated ad for Chivas Regal!!! An Oscar is not a free ticket to fame and glory!

Seriously, this is a mini masterpiece.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

A prying neighbor, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta make up the welcome wagon. Set amidst the as-yet-unopened boxes and the hopes for a fresh start of two men on what might just be the worst moving day ever. Their new apartment reveals its terrifying history in a film that is by turns funny, frightening, and unexpectedly romantic.
