1972 - LA CABINA or The Phone Booth

A man is trapped in a phone booth which is the entire plot for this unique short film from Spain.

La Cabina, reminds of a Luis Bunuel film.  Lots of surreal touches, comedy and some horror.  The film is probably some kind of allegory for Spanish society but since I don't as rule like allegories very much, this can just be enjoyed as a very entertaining short film.

Considering that the viewer has to watch a film that is essentially an actor confined in one space for about 30 minutes this is a well directed little piece of cinema.

La Cabina can be found on youtube  here.

36 minutes.
