Have you ever longed to see a mime get stomped to death by a 50-foot tall woman wearing red sneakers (who gets abducted by aliens while trying to lift an apartment building in Paris off the ground)? Look no further than Guillaume Niquet's magnificent new short film entitled O.V.N.I. Barely six minutes long, O.V.N.I. focuses on a tightly-wound woman named Mariane who is overtly paranoid and convinced that she's "special." As she wanders around the streets of the city, people react strangely to her presence. If you could imagine a farcical version of The X-Files with a set of mischievous aliens trying to figure out what to do with their new toy, you'd be close to discovering the perverse joys of O.V.N.I.
