Crumbs (2015/IndiePix DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: B Film: B

Miguel Llanso's Crumbs (2015), the first Ethiopian Post Apocalyptic film, is a beautifully short one hour feature that is artistic and stylized, but ultimately feels like a Terry Gilliam film on acid.

Starring Daniel Tadesse, the film tells a story of diminutive superhero Gagano (Tadesse), a junk collector, who embarks on a surreal journey that's set against post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes. He's had enough of collecting "valuable crumbs of a decayed civilization," when a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky (resembling a human arm) for years, starts showing signs of activity, and Gagano has to overcome his fears - which includes a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis - to find out that the world isn't quite what he thought it was.

Since the film is short and full of strange surprises, some funny and others bizarre, I don't want to give away too much, but I will say that I was not disappointed by this film and would definitely watch it again. I'm definitely interested to see what this filmmaker does in the future.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a lossy, Amharic 5.1 Dolby Digital track, the film looks and sounds fine on DVD.

Extras include:

Night In the Wild Garden: six min

Crumbs Anecdotes - 6 min.

Chigger Ale - 11 min.

The paper thin case is also cool that has very nice inner artwork.

If you are into bizarre adventures, then you will like this post apocalyptic film that was the winner of several awards including the International Film Festival in Rotterdam in 2015.
