Short films are often odd, even surreal, and TCaLSotSB is no exception. It's a Grimm's fairy tale on drugs, a story of two brothers who attempt suicide at the same time each day, and fail miserably and rather bizarrely over and over. They're visited by a fairy who tries to get them to understand that life is worth living. Yes, that's pretty much the story. And it's told in a jerky, cartoonish manner that is at once appealingly childlike, and unsettlingly sinister.
The housemate and I watched it mostly because one of the brothers is played by Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane, "Sleepy Hollow") who co-wrote the film with Rupert Friend (He who looks more like Orlando Bloom than Orlando Bloom does), who plays the other brother. I'm not sure how they came up with the concept. I think it must have had something to do with too much Jagermeister and a Katzenjammer Kids marathon, but I could be wrong. Once we got past the weirdness of the piece, we began to enjoy it. It's genuinely hilarious if your sense of humor has gone over to the dark side.
Don't look for any sort of deep meaning here. Enjoy the inspired goofiness.
