Be Kind Rewind

“Rewind City,” which promotes a French DVR service, plays the metaphor out literally: Crowds around the woman begin to move backward. A bus arrives, and with it the woman’s lover. Then comes the inevitable reunion. The spot was filmed in Goa, India, by Ringan Ledwidge — whose time-twisting Hovis bread ad was another recent Very Short List pick. Like that other miniature movie, “Rewind City” matches formal inventiveness with real emotional resonance — it, too, is a keeper.
