Sooner Or Later: time for Nazis

Sooner Or Later
Written & directed by István Madarász

The scene of this English sub-titled Hungarian short film occurs at the end of World War II, as the Nazis are experimenting with a time travel inducing serum.
A complex plot, simply presented; though the temporal (dis)continuity logic is iffy, implying a repeating causality loop.
But regardless, Sooner Or Later tells an interesting story with a minimalist approach, in a well produced film.
We really need to foster appreciation for minimalist story telling. Don't under-estimate the narrative power of people talking (with each other).
