Table 7

(YouTube link)

A couple having an intimate dinner conversation don't realize they are being monitored. A short film by Marko Slavnic. -via Everlasting Blort

It's a great concept, but holy hell, listening to an inane argument for that long, with NO ACTUAL INFORMATION about what is actually going on, is just painful. Just truly, painful to hear. An argument about nothing can't be 90% of your film. I get that the point is that they weren't really getting anywhere, but good god. If you typed out that conversation and read it, it's is just so inane and meaningless, it hurts the brain.

How to make this short better...
1. Watch the first 10 seconds
2. Watch 10 seconds from 50s to 1min
3. Watch 10 seconds from 2m 30s
The end.

I'd disagree that the lack of information in the conversation was annoying. You could perhaps argue as much with hindsight, but my initial (incorrect) take on it was that the man listening in was waiting and waiting for the moment they would reveal some important information - we were feeling exactly what he was feeling, wanting them to just say something! Thus I was being misled into believing the plot was going one way, and when, with the reveal, I realised what was actually going on, it was far more satisfying. It was very well put together, very clever.

It would be a sad world if everything had to be just 30 seconds long (or spelled out from the beginning) to satisfy our ridiculously short attention spans these days.
