The journey through our past, present and the future
Is it possible to convincingly portray the 360-degree cycle of your life within 360 seconds? Yes, it is. Backstory, a 2016 short film, narrates the story of any ordinary individual living in this world. The aquarium tour by dad, random walk across the park, feeling the hair of another animal and celebrating your birthday – shots that summarise your childhood.
Joschka Laukeninks (Director) made sure that she narrates everything you witnessed, from a different perspective – The Backstory. Eike Rieche (Cinematographer) and Vera Berg (Editor), finely scripted their 130-odd shots into this beautiful miniature. This double-edged sword task was treated flawlessly, and they deserve appreciation more than anyone. The picturization of the female lead stands apart.
Joschka tried to amplify the importance of true love, on how it can transform oneself. The enormous strength that it supplies on its fusion and turning into a black hole on its demise, love can perform the act on its own, as per its wish. German Wahnsinn (Music & Mix) through his background score, assisted the screenplay exceptionally well, in showcasing the emotions that each person would’ve undergone.
On a personal note, I like the risk the team took, in making this short film and glued my seats for 360 seconds. Well, are you ready?
Effective, Yet Slightly Shallow Short Film
This German production gets high marks from me on the film’s technical merits alone. You can watch it for free on Vimeo, and I suspect it’s already being used by film professors to demonstrate the effectiveness of the classic “match cut” technique, where every scene is purposefully staged to be synchronous or parallel with the previous one.
The film only breaks its match-cutting pattern towards the very end, for reasons I won’t spoil here.
It’s a film about a single life, from beginning to end, distilled into six minutes. While most people will probably find it very profound, I ultimately found it a bit cynical in its implication that life consists of a series of meaningless events – save for the moment when you met that special someone, which outweighs everything else. It is a sad film about the meaninglessness of experience, which in its attempt at a communicating a universal truth, still finds itself relying on Hollywood clichés about youth and adulthood.
I’ve seen nothing but praise for this film, so I suspect my feelings are not typical. In the director’s statement, he says:
“We hope that everyone will be able to see at least a small part of his own life in this story. And we hope that it inspires people to enjoy every single moment they have been given in this life. Because time keeps on running. Always.”
I can get behind that sentiment, even if the film doesn’t seem to be communicating one man’s enjoyment of his life so much as a life on autopilot, one filled with impulsive decisions in the beginning and a rote existence towards the end, all infused with a stereotypical middle-upper class ennui that American prestige dramas have long been fascinated with (“Breaking Bad,” “The Sopranos,” “House,” etc.).
Regardless of the story it’s still a technical achievement, one with superb sound design and a killer voiceover by Philipp Moog linking all the disparate life moments together. It’s six minutes long, very ambitious, and has won a bunch of awards. No reason not to give it a watch.
