Uhloz

France, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Fiction)

Director: Guy Jacques

What would you wish for if you were a twelve year old locked in your room on Christmas Eve? What about a remote controlled toy space craft that could fly, hover and fire missiles right through your bedroom door. This wonderfully extreme short film from France should fulfill every nasty kid's dreams.
