Short Film: ‘Omnibus’ is a Delightful Comic Look At Missing Your Train

Why Watch? Another gem from Cannes, this short from Sam Karmann won the Palme d’Or in 1992 and later the Oscar as well. It’s a simple, very funny look at what happens when a man gets on the wrong train.

Karmann converts this annoyingly relatable comic problem into a mini-adventure by raising the stakes to outlandish proportions and delivering a true knockout of a punch line.

What Will It Cost? About 7 minutes.
