vimeo rocks, good on ya for using it.
I'm not generally into shorts, but I really liked it.
Technically sound. steady camera work, very good lighting, sound was there, nice cinematography, above average cutting/editing. Actor reminded me of Mr. Bean, being silent and all, but overall good.
Likely to your credit; good production.
Brutal, Constructive Criticism;
the opening quote was cut to short, you should have it narrated over opening scene (which drags). I would recommend starting the opening scene dialog/quote right after the (opera?) music.
Use a sexy female voice in non-english (i would recommend sticking to a romance language).
As I mentioned above, actor/ing reminded me of Mr. Bean, not to diminish the value of your film, but to be honest about perceptive popular opinion... you might not get full credit for originality with this looming. I would use some who looked different but acted the same, perhaps a blond actor.
Lastly, I also think you should end on the wink/smile/swivel, the additional scene is very anti-climatic. I would cut at (7:23).
Thanks for making it!
