Funny how with the astronaut the first thing I thought of was diving, and then later they cut to the fisherman.

That was nice. The French narration made it.

That was cool. For anyone wondering if the link is worth clicking, it's a very clever little short movie, narrated in French with English subtitles.

Maybe it's just me but the quality of Vimeo seems to be declining pretty sharply these days. I can't watch more than a minute or two at a time and Youtube videos buffer just fine in HD. Most videos on Vimeo seem to buffer more than Youtube.

Great short film though.

Merde translates as damn? I suppose that is the usage if not the literal.

The above comment by yoink is about the OP and it is worth reading.

Yes.

Also, thanks to this video, I learned how to say 'balls' in French.

Merde is as rude as damn is, when used as an interjection.

It may interest you to learn that the literal translation of the 'damn it all to hell' in the final 'damn it all to hell! no, no, no, it's (spoilers)!' is 'male prostitute of shit' (putain de merde).

and I've always thought that 'couilles' is a more evocative term than 'balls'.

I was rooting for the poor alien snake.

Merde.

On-the-go posters can't be bothered with context. Thanks, Yoink.

Sorry for the lack of context, everyone. I was particularly taken by the way the film unfolded and was afraid of giving anything away, however slight.

Sorry for the lack of context, everyone.

The complaints in this thread might leave the impression that there's a consensus against mystery meat posts, but there isn't. This recentish MeTa on the subject shows a broader range of views.
