      Audience Member If you give up on your ideals after a half-hour ride across the city, then you probably weren't true to them in the first place Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member funny...awesome...!!! 10 minutes...and it all conveys the message...!!! lovvvveddd ittt... :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Thought provoking short about a man trying to get to the polls on time, while running a gamut of racist taxi drivers on the way. Will his liberal reaction conflict wth his desire to vote or will he make it there before it closes? No easy answers but a few questions to ponder along the way. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Great short by Anders Thomas Jensen. It's the election night and Peter, a responsible man, forgets to vote. Now he has very little time to vote, he starts to run to make it while running away from all the racism around him. Darkly funny and ironic as all of Jensen's following feature films. The song used at the end credits put a smile on my face for a long time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member C'est l'histoire d'un type qui s'est rendu compte qu'il avait oublié d'aller voter et il lui reste moins d'une heure pour le faire. Sur le trajet qui l'emmène vers les bureaux de vote, il ne va rencontrer que des racistes. Les dix minutes du court-métrage sont une dénonciation du racisme avec humour. On reconnaît tout de suite la patte de Jensen. En fait, c'est assez drôle car notre héros juge négativement les pensées des gens, insulte les racistes et lorsqu'il se retrouve au bureau de vote, il commet LA gaffe. Bref, c'est vraiment bien foutu. C'est dix petites minutes de plaisir. Et ça a remporté l'oscar du meilleur court-métrage à l'époque.
