Thanks for this, growabrain! You've made the post I've been pondering for days. I would strongly recommend readers check out BLR's meta-trailer k3loid too.

Sorry about that, Bora. I hate it when it happens to me.
The Gift is from last year, and won 2 Lions @ Cannes.

@Joe: I think it is a retelling (of sorts) of The Hunt of the Unicorn (the OP's last link). Wikipedia link.

Graphics are incredible. Atmosphere owed alot to half-life, but that's not a bad thing.

..like most medieval art, an allegory of the life of Christ. You can kind of get the whole story there with son of god, apostles, devil, Romans, crucifixion, rebirth, etc

"The Gift" was one of the entries in the Philips Cinema sessions, [discussed previously]; the Company had recruited filmmakers into producing independent projects (Jun and the Hidden Skies, El Secreto de Mateo, The Hunt and the Blade Runneresque Dark Room) which incorporated the same lines of dialogue as a connecting theme.
