This short is a great little introductory prelude to The Darjeeling Limited, but it works okay on its own, too. The brief narrative concerns a man in a hotel room who gets a visit from his estranged ex.
It's pretty much a two character piece, but it's amazing how strong this is, and it's only 13 minutes. The art direction and cinematography are wonderful. Schwartzman and Portman put in some terrific work, and Portman briefly gets naked, so, if you like that sort of thing, here it is.
I think Anderson should make more shorts because this is really good, and, given that it is limited by time, he is forced to be more creative and tell a whole story in a short amount of time. He's in somewhat of a rut as of recently, although Fantastic Mr. Fox did pull him out of it a bit. I think this sort of thing could really revitalize his career.
Give this a watch. It's really something.
She: Are you running away from me?
He: I thought I already did.
A Paris hotel room. A broken heart. Two ex-lovers.
It's an interesting short, but I don't feel that it really had any purpose outside it being an introduction to Darjeeling Limited. Sure it has Natalie Portman, but that's all it amounts to.
"Whatever happens in the end, I don't wanna lose you as my friend."
A short prologue of one heartbreaking history of love and the prologue of the travel told in "The Darjeeling Limited"
