Acclaimed French short Coupe Court will blow your mind

Not the catchiest of headlines, but there's no other way to explain the brilliantly bizarre short flick I just watched.

Written and directed by Pascal Chind, Coupe Court (Short Cut) is best described as a David Lynchesque fantasy/love story. But even that doesn't do it justice. It's weird, but I couldn't take my eyes off it. And it's big in France, where it's the most broadcast short in French TV history.

The plot: for Tom, when it comes to big love, size doesn't matter. But for Françoise, the woman he loves, it might. If the woman doesn't weigh up the consequences of her actions, other people might solve the little disagreement.

Watch, and judge for yourselves, Basementites!

Coupe Court stars Karen Alyx, Jean-Paul Bernard, Chris Egloff, Christophe Fluder and Jean-Francois Lam.

Big thanks to Anna Brooke for bringing Coupe Court to our attention!

Shawn:  Just wanted to add, that everyone should have a friend, that would do this for them!  Awesome.
