Mousse

dir. by John Hellberg, Sweden
runtime: 40 min
What could be easier than robbing a small tobacco shop on the outskirts of town? It's during the year's biggest horse race event and the betting center Washington's Tobacco looks like the ultimate hit for some fast cash. Mousse is a man of pride and principles and fed up with living as a second-class citizen. But what happens when he faces principles different to his own?

Directors Statement

Mousse has many dimensions, but is rst and foremost a tribute to the saga. The joy of storytelling is something I o en feel is lacking from the short lm format in particular. It’s all too easy to get lost in the excitement and deliberation of pursuing of the ’perfect’ story, loosing sight of the value of entertainment as a means of capturing the attention of the audience. Mousse has many dimen- sions but the underlying driving force of working on this lm has been to empha- sis the value of storytelling, and of the story itself”
