Critics reviews

Even though From One Second lacks Herzog’s trademark–the persistent, questioning voiceover–his presence is felt throughout the short film, both in the line of questions that are asked (in onscreen text), and in the unusual formal touches that no ordinary PSA would ever include… Focusing on atonement and forgiveness rather than scare tactics, Herzog’s film is poetic propaganda in the mold of John Grierson.
