The Last day
A witty short that’s also hilariously funny in mixing the sardonic with the slapstick. Everything is normal in director Klaudja Matvejevaite’s neat little suburb except for one thing --- all the residents know when they are going to die, and that can make for a lot of ticklish diplomacy when somebody has an eye on your sweater or has to make a shopping list for supper.
