Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Don't be misled: Death of the Rat is not a crime film. Instead, it's a semicomic 6-minute dramalogue on the credits and debits of modern technology. The rat must die in the name of progress....but is this progress? Despite its light tone, the film hits upon a few profundities. Director Pascal Aubier is to be applauded for offering fluent tract in a palatable fashion.
