A day with no coffee is a day lost. Coffee enthusiasts are often prudent not to ruin the taste of their favorite morning espresso by adding milk or sugar, quickly downing their coffee shot. There are also those who cherish the drink – and simply call the waiter for another cup with no other care in the world. However, the protagonist of “Espresso” can’t wait to be serviced and kills time with some chair gymnastics. Alexander Gratzer utilized the film-within-a-film motif and spins an ironic tale about the ludicrousness of giving extra meaning to everyday situations – the ones which are nonsensical and simply happen, only occassionally getting attention.
