Short film 'Vernal Equinox' drifts without plot

Short film, 'Vernal Equinox,' from French filmmaker Stephane Benini is out today on YouTube. The 12-minute movie has no plot or dialogue, but it does have a lot of drifting.

When I firstreported on French filmmaker Stephane Benini's "Vernal Equinox," I was under the impression that it was going to be feature-length and for the theater. But the 12-minute short flick was released on YouTube today.

As previously reported, the movie is about a student who faces a unexpected situation when he returns home. In actuality, the movie makes about as much sense as an episode of Lost. The soundtrack has kind of a eerie edge to it, giving a sense of suspense. And you can tell a lot of thought was put into setting up each shot. But without a plot, the best part of the movie is the driving.
