Film Noir from a Future Without Femmes Fatales

In the short movie "Planet Man," every woman has suddenly disappeared from Earth. Our hapless protagonist whirls through a retro-noir city in New Zealand, filled with gender angst.

Yes, it's another bizarro scifi flick from New Zealand, and because that country is so civilized their government funds a website called NZ On Screen where you can watch the whole, freaky movie for free online.

You won't believe the semi-naked gun fight - involving the world's only remaining woman! - that comes right after this clip where our hero encounters sex in the post-woman world.
