It is with only the finest equipment that the determined Louis Skellington envisions the best way to end his life. He quickly thinks back on all of his failures in life, and sees, laid out on a table, in a state of surreal hopelessness, all of the different objects that will help him achieve his goal. A gas cylinder, a piece of rope, bleach, razor blades… he has the means. The question is: which should he use to minimize his suffering? Nicolas Bary produced this dark but humorous short film, directed by Olivier Riffard. The disillusioned Skellington is played by François Levantal, a true feat of acting achieved in 5 minutes.
