press

„Best International Short goes to Robin Polak’s Speechless. 

We found it to be a note-perfect exercise in short filmmaking: 

relevant in revealing its uncomfortable truths (but never manipulative), 

beautifully acted and genuinely moving.“

JURY DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

 

„A touching reminder of innocence and the power of family“

JULIEN DUBUQUE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

 

„..Erstaunlich wieviel man in sechs Filmminuten erzählen kann. 

Der alles erklärende Gegenschuss ist perfekt getimt und auch die Reaktionen des Kindes und der jungen Frau sind mit einer Präzision inszeniert, 

die diesen Kurzfilm zu einem berührenden kleinen Drama werden lassen..."“

about

OSKAR FEVER is a movie about a movie. Oskar and his friend Benny meet in a bar to talk about a new script Oskar is currently writing but isn't able to sell it to a production company. Benny wants to help and starts to add new scenes and topics to make the story more suitable for the bigger audience. In his opinion an international successful German film needs to have some Nazis in it and sex, animal babies, tears, violence, action and marginalized groups combined with the German-German history. Oskar on the other hand isn't very fond of Bennys crazy ideas. But after a couple of drinks his point of view changes and the two of them continue their creative process.OSKAR FEVER is a short satire about the stereotypical cheesy dramas and blockbusters German TV and film suffers from. A black comedy about film making.
