A man gets off a boat. He walks into a restaurant and orders albatross soup. He takes one sip... pulls out a gun, and shoots himself to death. So...why did he kill himself?
It's not a true story, and while it is a riddle, Albatross Soup is much more than that. This surreal animation by Winnie Cheung explores the "twenty questions" type mystery and how people come to the answer. The whole story eventually becomes clear, although it is told backwards. This video contains NSFW language. Cheung discusses the short film in an interview at the Vimeo blog. -via Laughing Squid
