Carousel: The Best Continuous Shot Ever?

Carousel: The Best Continuous Shot Ever?

Carousel is a short film directed by Adam Berg, which won the Cannes-Lions 2009 Film Grand Prix.  The film offers viewers an exploration into one single frozen moment of time in a robbery gone terribly wrong, presented in one continuous tracking shot.  Carousel makes you feel as if you’re traveling through a single photograph, with a narrative developing as the camera roams around the scene, returning to the opening shot at the end.  The film is about a tumultuous heist set in a hospital, with the police facing off against a gang of criminals wearing clown masks and boiler suits.  On its own, it clocks in at (a totally coincidental) two minutes and 19 seconds, but Berg conceived it to work as a loop.
