Salty Times - a silent Swiss short film

Salty Times was directed by Stefan Eichenberger and came second in the 2011 Swiss Hotel Film Awards. This is a competition where all 20 short film finalists are set in Swiss hotels, hence the name of the prize.
It was filmed in the Grandhotel Giessbach along Lake Brienz in the Bernese Oberland, and in the Hotel Belle Epoque in Bern. Two beautiful hotels that have kept that wonderful 19th century feel to them.

The story is set in a hotel in the 1930s. A shy salesman of saltshakers arrives. He is the only guest. While drinking a glass of milk in the lobby bar, the sexy singer chats him up – but only to make the barkeeper - her ex - jealous.

But see for yourself.
