What do you think of the film "Schwarzfahrer" (Youtube), is it funny?
For me, this is a classical example for the tit-for-tat principle. Let the old lady feel what it is like to be judged and treated badly - unjustified. Now she's got her lesson what it feels like. The same thing she does to others all the time. I couldn't help but to gloat. And it was funny, because what the young man did was unexpected and very shrewd: Grabbing the tickes and swallowing it, well knowing what would happen. Brilliant!
Thamks spoiler! And now I'm looking forward to reading sb else's opinion, view. Or do you think they don't like the film?
Do you want my opinion as to whether other people like or don't like this (award-winning) short film? I cannot and dare not speak for others and, furthermore, "they" is is a rather fuzzy thing. Some among other users might like the film, others don't. Until they haven't sounded their voice and given an opinion we don't know.
To be honest, I wasn't particularly fond of this movie, either, in terms of "I liked it". And what the colored young man did was not legal, either. But the film, I guess, what not really made to be liked by the audience. The films intention was to make a statement and give the audience something to think about. It's like the work of an artist, a painter for that matter: He doesn't paint his picture for someone to like it, to hang it over the couch. That might the case with that film, too.
Even though I might be rambling: The man taking the ticket from the old lady might be something like a metaphor for what we, the Western society, have done to the so-called 'Third World' for centuries: Exploiting them, taking away their resources and let them stand with egg on their face. He did that in return.
